WLMS is the best run school in WL. The teachers are pretty much together - lots of involvement and the principle is a number 1! He knows every students name - and has monthly meetings with his parent advisory group that any parent can attend.

I am very impressed with the middle school. The current Principal is the greatest, he is the best in the town. I would love to have him cloned and put in the 3 other schools. I do wish the middle school had indoor track my child doesnt not play basketball but would like to do indoor track. Also instead of pushing music have an option of art. Some are not good at music and love to draw but they only have a 1/4 year of art and are forced to do a full year of music. More parents need to get involved, it seems like the same parents are helping year after year.

Honestly, Rock Hill High School is an excellent environment for a child to grow up in. It is not segregated or dominated by any race. There are numerous after school activities and programs for students to actively participate in. Although we might not be in Newsweek's Top 100 High Schools, we focus on students' education and learning (not just completing standards and finishing a book). GO BEARCATS!

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.
