My family and I love Judson School. The teachers are great and care about all the children very much. The building underwent a complete renovation and addition last summer and it is a wonderful new school for the children with great amenities.

I sent my four children to Judson School and rate it as an excellent school. I and glad my children had the opportunity to go to this public elementary school. The teachers were great, caring and concerned about each and every child.

My experience with Fletcher Judson school has been excellent! The Faculty and staff could not be more supportive and helpful to both the student's and families. I have found our principal to be the best I have encountered.Having a child with some special needs, we have gotten wonderful support and guidance. I highly Rate this school and have nothing deragatory to say about it! I would also like to thank all of the proffessionals for all of their help in making the last three years very pleasant and productive ones!

I'm not sure who wrote the other review of Judson School, but I have found nothing but great things going on there. The teachers are very professional, care deeply about our kids, and do so with very little in terms of resources, as too many townspeople avoid the budget process entirely. I commend Judson School leadership as well as staff for creating a wonderful learning environment!

Overall, our experience was positive. Ms. Greenwood and Mrs. Boston are two of the best teachers we've encountered, but unfortunately, we've also encountered two of the worst (who shall remain nameless). I was disappointed this past year that many of the extracurricular activities, including clubs, had been cancelled due to 'budget problems'. In my opinion, this was an excuse to do away with something that the principal viewed as a hassle in the first place. The quality of the school has declined over the past five years, after the original principal left the school. The school is in desperate need of a 'cheerleader'!

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.
