My daughter has a nice teacher but other than that terrible school. They are only in this for the money! The school is horribly laid out and the principal constantly changes her hair wigs extensions exc, which is only teaching our children that they have to kept changing themselves to look nice I say this is a terrible school other than the challenge room and teacher because Lisa Thomas is AWESOME!!!!!

Clover is a wonderful school. My shy son has excelled here and loves going to school each day. Teachers and staff are dedicated to the students' success academically, socially and emotionally. We've also had a great experience with the Challenge Program... it is a great opportunity for kids who need more challenging work. Clover offers many fun activities for children (parent/child bookshare, math night, etc.) as well as numerous opportunities for parent involvement (PTA, Action Team, reading in class with your child, etc.).

My children go to Clover Street School. It is the best kept secret in Windsor. It is a small community, where the teachers and staff really know the students. I wouldn't send my kids to any other school

Clover Street school is the best kept secret in town! The parents who don't send their children here don't know what they are missing! Clover is a culturally diverse school with great opportunities for kids. The teachers are talented and dedicated. The administration is creative, fair and accessible. There is a great strings program, a challenge program (contrary to what the writer below indicates) and a community service group for the older children (K-kids). It is truly a gem! Kids that go to Clover Street go on to excel in middle school, high school and beyond. Keep up the good work!

I think that if your child is above average this is not the school for you. I wish that they didn't just teach for the test. If your child is actually doing well they don't challenge them. They don't have an gifted program here. The teachers do seem very nice. They only get 20 mins of recess a day, and gym once a week. But they do have a nice string 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.
