This is a large school with a small school feel. It has amazing facilities. The teachers and other educators and administrators are motivated and caring and very knowledgeable. The students are kind and generally very happy. There is a real sense of a caring community and good learning at Cider Mill School.

This school is beautiful in its facilities and in the teaching that goes on there. My children are thriving and learning academics as well as how to get along in the world at this wonderful school. Great, dedicated teachers and staff. We are so fortunate to be in this town and this school.

My daughter just finished at Cider Mill and my son just began. Daughter's experience in the Cannondale house was outstanding. Fantastic teachers, lots of individual attention, great communication with me as needed. My son is in Belden Hill house. He absolutely loves his teacher, and is excited and engaged by the learning experience. Front office staff is a bit on the stern side, but it's only notable because the rest of the school staff is so great.

Cider Mill is an outstanding school with very devoted and competent teachers and a wonderful administration. Children are challenged academically, supported, and taught respect for each other.

Me and my children moved here over the Christmas holiday, and my 4th grade son has completely adjusted to Cider Mills. He was welcomed by all with smiling faces. They teach the children not only book smart, but how to be respectful to other children and adults. It has made the move so much easier that my children enjoy school in Wilton.

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.
