TE Middle schools is a great school. All the teachers are helping and cooperative. It has very good parent portal from which parent can access the the current grades for the students.

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.

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.

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.
