Linden St school is a great place - children are clearly made the focus and there is a real sense of community. Academics are very good and my children enjoy going to school!

We moved to plainville just in time for my daughter to start 1st grade. We found that all of our previous concerns that were pushed aside in another town were true concerns. The staff at linden noticed she was struggling abd talked to us about it and offered many programs to help her. I am forever grateful that I moved here to such a great school when the last one just put all concerns aside. My daughter is now doing really well in school and I owe it all to linden.

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.
