As a very involved parent of a child that attended this school for 6 years I can truly say that Veterans is a good school. With very caring academic advisors this school is great for any child that is looking for a proper education. This school has a very fine structure with it's no tolerance of bullying and it's highly diversital surroundings. In the ratings of the public we came out second to last in academics which was extremely wrong indeed. Though this school faces the ultimatum of location it has an excellent teaching team who are devoted to the children's academics as well as their social development. Not to mention home of the teacher voted best in the county. Therefore , if you are a concerned parent looking for a school that will nurture your Child's many needs look no further than Veterans Memorial School .

All 3 of my children have gone to this school. I love it. They loved it. The teachers are very nice and i know all of them. I am surprised about the test scores because the teachers go above and beyond to help every child. A very diverse school. Your child will not ever feel out of place.I was the president of the pto for 3 years. Absolutely no parent involvement.

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.
