Teachers give up if students are failing classes, the school is a dump. We are getting a new one but that's not gonna stay in shape like the high school already having leakage and mold problems. There is a small and amount of teachers who care, and I thank them for that but the rest just hold the job for benefits. One of my teachers would give us some useless busy work and spend their own time on facebook, or talking on the phone. Fights break out constantly. Teachers seem to ignore bullying that goes on. This school needs to be fixed. Fast.

Academic programs are very good and the teachers really care. Extracurricular programs are few but very innovative. Outside of sports and craft types of programs that run 2 days a week, there is also a gardening and science workshop. Daily curriculum has 5 core courses: math, english, science, social studies and foreign language and 3 noncore rotating courses: music, gym/health and art. Courses run on a 6 day schedule so holidays don't interfere with the noncore classes. After school sports include soccer, basketball, baseball and softball. There is also a debate team in both the high school and junior high which focuses on daily problems (economy, environment, etc.). Parent involvement is expected and usually most participate during and after school. My involvement is the Food Advisory Committee along with any special requests. This week we will participate in a family math/science night. Overall I would rate the school an A-.

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.
