My daughter attend pre-k at this school and she has had a wonderful experience. The staff is very warm and caring. She has gone on many field trips and has made many friends. This program has prepared her well for kindergarten. Although this is not her district school, I have requested her to stay at Wilson for Kindergarten.

My child has been a student at Woodrow Wilson for a few years because that school is in our district. While I praise Dr.DaSilva's efforts to improve the overall reputation and curriculum,I have not been satisfied with the staff there. I find many of them to be snooty and very verbal in their surprise by the abundance of parent participation! Some tend to challenge everything you say and make you feel wrong for asking questions about your child. Just because most of us are minorities does not mean we care about our children any less. This should not come as a surprise. I would like to see a staff with less attitude and and more racial tolerance (or more staff that look like our children). I would also like to see more efforts to bring our children's grades up to a level that we can all be proud of.

Woodrow Wilson School provided my son Isaiah with an unforgettable experience and a stepping stone to the next level. He was so excited about learning and the motivation he received has established confidence early on. Their curriculum was sound and I appreciate their efforts. Gina Thomas

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.
