My daughter moved in Booth Hill at the middle of the year but teachers and students were so welcoming and transition was so smooth. This school has got excellent Principal who manages the staff and kids safety to the extent. I really liked the teachers, school programs led by PTA and Father's Club and kids are always busy. Community is quite diverse and accomodates all type kids, to grow stong in the Global world. Best wish to the school, staff and kids future.

The teachers are fabulous at this elementary school. I have never had one that both myself and my child didn't absolutely love.

If you have a child with needs, be on guard! The social worker at Booth Hill school is not a caring and compassionate person. She seems more concerned about saving money and keeping children from receiving services rather than recognizing and responding to their needs. If you find yourself facing a bullying situation or PPT, hire an advocate. You will most definitely need one.

I couldn't be happier with Booth Hill! My daugter is finishing 5th grade and my son is in first. I can't say enough about the staff as well as the PTA. The parental involvement at the school is wonderful. It is a smaller which gives it a real tight community feel.

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.
