We recently moved to town and my son was welcomed with open arms. Although he still struggles with reading he has come a long way with only one year at Yalesville! The environment is positive with affirmations posted throughout the school and the children start the day with positive announcements. Although my son was excited for summer he was actually sad he wasn't going to go to school. I also want to mention that I do know that Wallingford has a reputation for being a bit "racist" but my son is bi-racial and hasn't felt the least bit an outsider.

Since my child falls within the 2% of African Americans that attend the school, I can say that this school has zero tolerance for ethnic slurs/names. This was an issue when my child first enrolled four years ago. We have had allot of support in the past when my child was out sick due to an illness. The school paid for my child to get tutoring during the summer to catch up during the summer with out having to attend summer school. The principal and staff are very qualified and excellent at keeping the lines of communication open with the parents.

I was not satisfied with the school security and very unhappy with the chaos and unorganization with the office and teacher that we had to deal with. This is a very modern day learning school, and for children and parents looking for traditional learning, this is not the school for you. I have since heard similar stories from other parents and have withdrawn my child from this school.

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.
