Posted February 24, 2005

With two children grades K and 3, I have been involved with Washington School for a few years now and have to say that I'm disappointed with the condition of the school inside and out. The children do not have a proper gymnasium, sometimes they have to eat lunch in their classrooms so students can attend phys ed. Also the playground is in very poor condition with pot holes and sand. There has also been issues with the bathrooms not having toilet paper and soap and paper towels which I beleive is an important hygiene issue for our children. I also had some issues with one of my children being bullied for sometime. However, there are some great teachers at Washington School who genuinely care about the students.

For being a first time parent with school kids I have to say that Washington has been very supportive. I could not ask for more compasionate teachers who care about their students. Mrs. Augelli is the Best principal in town. I feel like my children are safe and taken care of. I am very proud of Washington school. I know my childrens education is enhanced due to 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.
