I am in 8th Grade, and all of my teachers are incredible, the staff really knows how to help us. The rules are good and so are the teachers. I love this school and I'm really going to miss it.

This is an excellent school. My oldest will be graduating and attending high school next year, and we will be sorry to see him leave. The academics are excellent. He has really enjoyed the classes and the teachers are super!

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.
