This is a very good school except for few drawbacks.My daughter is in first grade, and i am totally not satisfied with the teacher.I personally think she could do more with the kids. Howmuch ever my child is good, she keeps on complaining to us about our child.If the parents has to take care of child's reading, writing and math,i am really not sure what the teacher's are for?I hope she ends up with a good teacher atleast next year.

The teacher my son has had are not so good except this year in 3rd grade.They keep droping threw the cracks until I get on the phone then they step up.If your child has a LD not the pkace for him or here..Bethel school system is so much better. The teachers are willing to work with your child.I for one should not have to correct my sons homework it is the teachers job.It is my job to make sure it is done..How can you help a student understand his or her work if you have us parent correcting it...

I am a proud parent of a student from Hill & Plain. My son had a wonderful time in Kindergarten with Mrs. Agati and is enjoying 1st Grade with Mrs. Snyder. Two phenomenal teachers who I would recommend to anyone! And most of the staff at the school are great to deal with. Thank you for giving my son a reason to love 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.
