Renovated in 2007. It is a beautiful green school with an all day kindergarten. My daughter is in 1st grade and loves going there everyday. The teachers, staff and even the bus drivers really care about the kids. My daughter is excelling in both math and reading. I only have praise for the school.

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.
