New Canaan East School has a great curriculum which is comprehensive and diverse ranging from daily computer classes to language sessions. The teachers are extremely attentive and provide an excellent structure - I strongly recommend East school.

East School is absolutely the best school my kids have ever been to. No staff has ever impressed me the way East's did. All of the teachers are kind experienced and all genuinely care about the kids. The curriculum is exceptional as is the rest of the New Canaan District. Academics is taken very seriously at East and they focus on prepping the kids for middle school and beyond. Furthermore, the parent involvement at this school is unbelievable. Parents are always updated on recent news ect. This school is a great choice for your child.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Connecticut used the Connecticut Mastery Test (CMT) to test students' skills in reading, writing and math in grades 3 through 8, and in science in grades 5 and 8. The CMT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Connecticut.
Beginning in the 2009-2010 school year, the Connecticut Department of Education implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the CMT test. The new standards for proficiency are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change.
