Because of its size, it is a very small and tight community of educators, paraprofessionals, administrators and families. West Broad houses 3rd and 4th grade only and so it is a close-knit group. We feel well-supported and feel that the teachers are attentive and get back to us in a prompt manner. The nursing staff is very kind and helpful and Mrs. Rose, the assistant principal knows everyone by name.

West Broad is an excellent school because it has a caring, educated,and patient staff of teachers, a wonderful Pricipal who is active in programs and getting grants that can help our children or school in any way. Extra programs for those who excel, right on track,and those that need extra attention are available to ALL students, not just those that can afford them. West Broad has areas for the children to play, in the gym, or on the fenced in playground, supervised at all times. WB also has a great community of parents invovled in PTO and school education programs. My daughter's experience, as well as my own, has been great at West Broad. We will miss it next year!

Stonington is a wonderful area to raise children. Academic standards are high. Art, music, library and gym are offered. The children annually write and sign a 'contract' promising exemplary behavior. Student citizenship is a high priority. The students are delightful and inquisitive. Two of the teachers are problematic. It is well known all other WBSS teachers are exemplary and provide their students wonderful school years. Lori Longori (district psychologist) is wonderful helping children adapt to stress, offering boys or girls support groups once per week. Principal Jordan is politician first, educator second. A 'favoratist', allowing certain parents to choose the good teachers for their kids. Perhaps she is restrained from removing inadequate teachers. None-the-less, she vocalizes concerns about architectural issues while vehemently ignoring parent and student problems. Volunteering parents to choose another school - and I did.

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.
