This schools is not very parent friendly. I never feel that I know what is going on in the classroom or the school in general, even after many attempts to get involved. Walkways and courtyards are not fully shoveled in the winter for walkers, even after I direct comment from the principal that he was going to make sure it got done. Several times I have shown up for school plays and parents had to wait outside (one time in the freezing cold), until they opened the side door for us. There were very old grandparents and babies waiting outside...20+ minutes. If you want to improve test scores to get yourself off of the list of failing schools in the state start with reaching out to the parents....there is a HUGE school (teacher)-parent disconnect at that school.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 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.
Beginning in the 2009-2010 school year, the Connecticut Department of Education implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the CMT test. The new standards for proficiency are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change.
