Lillie B. Haynes is a wonderful school. Both of my boys went here and they loved every second of it. My older son has a learning disability and my younger son has autism. I was so impressed with the services they received- especially the integrated preschool. The teachers and administrators were always looking to help in any way they could. I can't say enough about Lillie B. Haynes, I will speak highly of them whenever I can. Best school and school experience ever. Highly recommend.

My son is new to this school this year and we couldn't be happier. The staff and students made him feel so welcome. They are very family oriented as well. It amazes me how many parents attend programs at the school. I've never seen a teacher like his and I wish every student had the chance to be in her class. She makes them love school. I can't say enough but every student is lucky to be a student at Lillie B Haynes.

A wonderful child who lives in my house (a friend and her daughter) go there. She loves this school. I also have twin sons (4 yrs old) who I plan on sending to that school. :)

This school is simply wonderful. I have a mildly autistic grandchild at this school, in their program. When he started at his 3rd birthday, he had no words, fits, and was not functioning. In 18 months, this school, the leaders, and the finest teachers available have basically saved my grandson's life. There is no end to their guidance, patience, and obvious love for him. What a place!

All around wonderful school! We switched to LBH after 2 years at Niantic Center School, and we are so happy we moved. Our children were happy about the move too. The teachers are friendly and welcoming. The principal is awesome! My only gripe is that the school is too big; it is the old middle school, so it is very spread out. It takes the kids quite a while to walk to their classes from the drop off area in front of the school. However, with a big school comes bigger classrooms and bigger halls, which is really nice. The cafeteria is great, as well as the gym. The music program is out of this world!

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.
