Posted June 23, 2005

Hi parents or students: As a student in this school, well not anymore because I graduated yesterday I would like to say that this school has taught me, and other students the value of going to school and learning many experiences that life itself has to not taught us yet.Troup gives the students an oppurtunity to express themselves in every educational way. I will never forget this school because not only do the teachers become your teachers but they also become your very close friends that help you. Thank You.

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.
