Posted July 19, 2013

I went to Gilmartin school for three years, graduated this year from 8th grade. I started going here when the school was build newly, in 6th grade and so on. At first, of course it was a little scary getting used to the new program of middle school. the teachers were so nice and they helped get through everything. something that i noticed about this school compared to all the others is that they really focus on the students. their are about 20 students in each class which makes it much easier to get to talk to each student. now as a graduate of Gimartin Middle School, i feel so proud. i would recommend this school to anyone. a above average student, gets the attention they deserve, they get extra classes to their standard. kids who need extra help in subject, get it. the teachers love helping out and their are great programs away from classes for maximum achievement. this school is now a k-8 school which i think is even better. kids who start off in elementary already have a middle school waiting for them. also the kids in middle school really love the little kids. always helping them get to class and making sure they know what is going on. i can talk about this school forever.

I am very concerned for my grandson. Who started out in a private school and is now in Gilmartin School. I found it loud and unorganized when I pick my grandchild.

i am a custodial grand parent. And my grandson went to this school, i cant say enough on how much they helped him through is learning problem. I'd recommend this school to everyone. Kind ,considerate,and very well oriented to a child's needs. Parents are closely involved and that support is needed . Way to go gilmartin ,you have my vote of confidence.

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.
