I have to 2 sons that have attended Kaynor, one is a graduate and is currently in UCONN and one is a senior, who will also be attending UCONN in the fall. I have nothing but good things to say about this school, it has done so much for my boys, it has shown them discipline and a desire to continue their education and become successful professionals. I recommend this school to everyone.

Kaynor has to be the best technical school in Connecticut. We have amazing test scores and teachers that really care. This school is great in so many ways. First off, the kids learn a trade. Not many people can walk out of high school and say 'I love what I do' but the Kaynor kids can. They have a chance to be someone. They have a chance to do something with their lives. There are of course, other reasons as to why this school deserves 5 stars, like the directors. They really put fourth the effort to make sure the kids get a great education and have a shot for a great future. The teachers also try their best to make sure they learn what they have to. I've heard other Waterbury schools aren't so great, but Kaynor (being a technical school) gives kids great futures, which leads to great lives.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Connecticut used the Connecticut Academic Performance Test (CAPT) to test students' skills in reading, writing, science and math in grade 10. The CAPT 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.
