We moved from Wethersfield.Ct to Newington. Having a bad experience with a Wethersfield elementary school , we were afraid what's going to happen when we have our kids in Newington schools. I must say, this was one of the best decision we ever made. Having daughter with speach difficulties, we were taken with open arms, and comfortate in any possible way. The preschool teacher Jen, is amassing, and rest of her staff working with her too, helping the kids with difficulties. They go over and beyond to make you as parent feel good, and help your child improve and succeed . There are people that work for paychecks, this particular teachers work , because this is their passion, they love what they do, and every day they help a kid master a goal, is a success for them and the proof of what they love to do. Principle is a great Lady, very easy to talk to and help if help is needed, front desk staff are very friendly and kind Ladies.. This school is one of a kind ..

I have four children at E.Green, and have been extremely happy with all aspects of the school. From the teachers, support staff, and even the principal, everyone is very approachable, and easy to talk to. They really care about the students at E.Green!

We have one child at E Green 2nd grade. The teachers seem to care a great deal more then what I hear from other's with kids in other local towns. However the district allows teachers to be out of class way to much. Teach 1st its the core reason for being on the job. The communication and caring are great. Please cut down on the teachers being away from class so much.

We have two children at E. Green, K and 3rd grade. The school is in the process of finishing up a total renovation (10/06), and looks great. I think at this point, we're pretty happy with the school. I was going to say that communications could be a little better, but then again, I've heard from the school too many times on my sons behavior (my sons fault, not the school). I'd rather know what's going on that not, so I appreciate the communications. Like any organization, there are good and bad members, but so far, we've only seen good, and have had no troubles with the school or the teachers. I wish the parents would pay attention to the parking situation, but that's for another website.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 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.
