excellent school, provides an almost perfect social environment for children in that age group due to the small size, nearby play grounds and sport facilities and parents' involvement. the school also attracts outstanding teachers.

Sherman is a very small school, with 500 kids for Pre-K to 8th grade.

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.
