Very friendly staff and teachers. You feel welcomed in this diversified school. I am surprised to see it being rated as 6, they deserve more.

Awesome school with awesome teachers. My daughter was in this school in 4th and 5th grade. While in 5th grade she had Mr Setaro (hopefully I spelled that right) I never seem my daughter so motivated or willing to learn until she was in Mr. Setaro class. He communicated often and paid attention to all his student, this guy is a model from what teachers should be like. We ended up moving to Texas unfortunately and my daughters new school doesn't even come close to the education and environment she was in Charles Wright. Charles Wright serves as the only reason we would come back to Connecticut. Thank you so much for everything Mr. Setaro and Charles Wright.

Charles Wright is an amazing place for a childs' academic, social and emotional growth to take place. It is the smallest yet most diversified school in areas of race, religion and economic means here in Wethersfield. We feel so fortunate to be able to refer to the school community as part of our extended family.

Charles Wright School is a school that makes not only the students feel welcome so do the parents of those children. As a parent of a 4th grade student who struggles every day(like all the rest of them) this school gives them a daily cheering section.

We have been very happy with the education our children are receiving at Charles Wright. There is a diversified group of children which lends itself to a very broad group. Teachers are very involved with the child's education and takes a genuine concern but the parents needs to be just as involved. It does not stop at the school but continues at home. The staff is wonderful and it is nice to see everyone coming together as one.

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.
