My two children have both received a excellent education at Tashua School. Teachers are outstanding and interested in making a difference in your child's education. The specialists are fantastic. High parent involvement with the PTA.

My 3 children all attend Tashua . The teachers here take the time to figure out what each child needs . In just one year my son went from not speaking a word of english to speaking it like it was his first language . My daughter was getting no where with her reading but with the extra help from the Tashua teacher she has managed to catch up to the other children .(she now has only A's and B's )

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.
