We just moved to the area a couple months ago and our daughter started kindergarten at Strong School. In a word, it is amazing. Welcoming environment, the other parents are friendly, and the teachers are very involved. Our daughter is thriving here.

We have been very please with Strong. We moved in the middle of the year last year and the staff was wonderful. Especially my son's 1st grade teacher. Miss Brown really made Nicholas feel welcome and like he was part of the class from the beginning. His transition was perfect. My other son is in Kindergarten this year and is loving his first introduction to school. -Ronda

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.
