Old Greenwich Elementary School is a Wonderful neighborhood school with strong parent involvement combined with a dedicated teaching staff. Our two children loved it and thrived. Both needed some extra support with ADHD and reading challenges, their teachers noticed it early and provided it without asking. Very pleased with the results.

New principal for 06/07 school year. She is really taking time to understand the parents/student/community. My two children love all of the staff - media, art, music, gym. My youngest attended pre-school at OGS. We walk to school and participate in after school programs (art, computers, chess, sports, dance). An early morning and after school program is available to working parents. Very involved parent community.

Great community school, very active parents and PTA. Notable focus on test scores, excellent befores/afters and music program. Advanced learning available for gifted children, special needs programs available for kids requiring attention. Several teachers live in the community. Good physical education during school, limited after school sports activities.

Highly recommened to us when we moved! Small town feel, many children walk with parents to school. Located in the center of Old Greenwich 'town'.

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.
