im yaslinda an eighth grader here and this school is beautiful and has gotten a thumbs up by all of my peers. This school teaches you manners and exceptional ways of conduct and ways to control yourself in as many ways as possible. This school outs you through a lot of things such as going on the news and making books and reading and writing at higher levels than your own. When I was in the 3rd grade I made a book along with the rest of my classmates. The book was called The Elm City alphabet book. I just telling you that this school is one of the best schools in new haven, CT and this school helps your child know as much as they need to know if not more. Thank you and have a nice day.

I think this school is great. My son is going into 2nd grade, he has learned so much since he's been here. He can read, write, and math is his best subject. I love this school.

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.
