Posted February 19, 2005

Timothy Edwards is an excellent school. The teachers are top notch and there is an overwhelming feeling of caring and respect in the building. South Windsor as a whole has a top notch music department and TE offers a variety of afterschool programs. I would highly recommend this school. In fact many move into the district just to attend such a great school.
—Submitted by a staff


Posted September 21, 2003

The staff encourages values that are questionable such as pridefulness and envidious comparison to other schools. They are boastful about honors they get from obscure organizations and pat themselves on the back for everything. Yet their performance as measured by test scores in neighboring towns is only average.

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.
