Posted December 2, 2011

Indeed some teachers and staff are wonderful and dedicated, however I believe some should take a sabbatical for new and innovating educational training. Moreover, the appearance of Stanton B. Elementary is depressing, gloomy and the building is so old it more than likely has some safety violations. Furthermore, class rooms are so overcrowded, learning materials are out dated, and their computers are so old I cannot imagine they really work. I don t want to forget to mention their nutritional program; however, I want to make it very clear that the staff works as hard as they can and makes the best with what they have to work with! The board of education should be ashamed for allowing this to continue. Stanton has failed more than once the state mandated test required for all Connecticut schools. As a result, Stanton has to hire out private agencies to tutor our children, however, only students who receive food stamps! SHAME, SHAME

They are great with the children that need special education. They helped my son so much. He has grown in many ways since he was there.

Staton is a wonderful school that stresses parental involvement. The teachers are kind and caring but firm when they need to be. There could be more afterschool activity but being gradeschool it's hard to get support for it. The quality and care that Stanton students get is fantastic.

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.
