Excellent school for average students. My child is speech delayed and I feel he has become a nuisance to them. For the first four months his teacher would say he was performing well and behaving properly. Then after the fall conferences she became more focused on documenting a record for how his behavior is deterring his academic development. I feel there isn't a genuine effort or interest in helping my child transition from special education into the regular environment. Because of this I will be moving into a different school district within the same town.

If you are looking for a school with teachers, administrators, custodians and a nurse who puts the children first, Web Hill is the place. The curriculum is excellent, the PTO is very active, and teachers are warm, dynamic and effective. Another strength is the arts program- instrumentals, chorus and visual arts are top notch!

I could not be happier with Web Hill. We are currently relocating, and cannot find anything to remotely compare. The academics are strong, the arts are appreciated, the student body is diverse and the environment is supportive and a happy place to be. Cannot say enough good things.

I am a former parent of Webster Hill and my kid loved that Webster Hill! My child got to study a lot of things there in Kindergarten Great Artists, 1st grade Africa, 2nd grade Japan, 3rd grade native americans, 4th grade bones, weather, rocks, ghana music. Next to the cafeteria there is the very popular courtyard. With an 'awesome butterfly house and in September the school releases the butterflys to Mexico! My kid loved the specials which included Art once a week, Music twice a week, Library once a week and gym twice a week. If my kid loved Webster Hill then anyone will.

I have a first grader and have been thrilled with Webster Hill. The parent support is fantastic, the teachers really care and the principal has the clout to only hire the best. In K, they did unit studies on the great artists and later on Mexico, as do the other elementary schools. This year, they're studying Africa, insects and focusing on Trailblazers math. Gym is twice a week, recess every day, music twice, art and library once a week. One thing they don't have, which I love at Duffy, is the before school gym class. I think that's a great program.

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.
