We are extremely pleased with our experience at Northville Elementary School. The teachers and staff are exceptional. Principal Susan Murray is terrific and is very hands-on with the students and with all school activities. The special education program is wonderful. The special education teachers and paras are amazingly attentive to the students needs and communicate very well with parents. We are so happy our children attend this school.

I am so happy with Northville ES and my son's teacher. My son's reading skills have grown by leaps and bounds since September and he is receiving excellent attention and motivation to do well

Northville School has wonderful teachers, paras, administrators - children always come first. If there was a problem, they would listen to you. Very good experience. Great start in a child's educational career. As a parent, I couldn't have asked for a better school for my children to attend.

Northville Elementary has a great community feel. The teachers are friendly, caring and competent. The atmosphere is highly professional and dedication is obvious. Much of this is due to the leadership of Principal Atticks. He takes an interest in each class and student, is approachable, even for a student and is known to spend time in each classroom every week.

We love Northville. The teachers are wonderful and they do a great job. The principal (Tom Atticks) is great with the kids and seems to have a very nice relationship with his teaching team. The PTO holds a family event (usually free!) once each month and gives several thousand dollars in grants to the school each year. The library is really well developed and maintained. There are many talented tutors and paras. Overall, a very good school. This is our 3rd different district (we transfer often) and it rates very high comparatively.

We just moved here a few months ago and my son is in Kindergarten. He loves his teacher Mrs. Sprindis. She has made his transition so easy. He is so happy and feels so comfortable. Everyone has been so great to the whole family. Thank you Northville Elementary with all of our hearts.

I just love Northville Elementary School. My daughter is in 2nd grade and she just loves school so much. The teachers are absolutely wonderful. They make each child feel like they are the most important, which gives each student the self esteem that young children need to succeed. The class is not over crowded which allows the teacher to provide the right amount of attention to each child. The principal is very involved with all school activities and he genuinely cares about each student.

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.
