Students are required to do a lot of busy work that detracts from real learning.

Teaching at MMS is a gift. The administration shows strong leadership, the families are engaged and supportive without "helicoptering", and the kids are wonderful. Having taught in other districts, the sense of community and caring are evident in every aspect of the school experience at MMS.

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.
