My daughter is a sixth grade student at Sage Park and is doing very well academically and socially. Her teachers are creative and supportive and her coursework is challenging. Sage does an excellent job of transitioning students from the smaller elementary schools to the larger environment of the middle school. Great school!

My second child is now attending Sage Park and she is flourishing. She is getting outstanding grades, a lot of challenge, and has very caring teachers with high expectations of their students. There are many at-school and after-school activities to keep her busy and learning, too. The administration has been very accessible and responsive to my questions and feedback. Glad my child is a Sage Park-er.

i think Sage Park has a wonderful VIP program in place. It helps the kids strive to get better grades. My daughter has been a VIP (very invested person) since entering this school. She is allowed extra priviledges for her good grades.

Both of my children have attended this school to my dissatisfaction. The Windsor school district has undergone quite a cultural change within the last few years, which I originally felt was a wonderful experience for my children. They would be able to interact with children from many ethnic backgrounds and learn to appreciate differences. Unfortunately, the district is/was not prepared for this change and the students basically run the schools. It is truly unfortunate that the district has not learned how to nurture and take advantage of the diversity available within the schools. There is a lack of parent/teacher partnerships. I even decided to sell my 'home' in an effort to provide my minority children with a better education.

My daughter transferred to Sage Park last year in the middle of the school year...not an easy time! Thanks to the staff at Sage Park, she has assimilated into the student population almost seamlessly. I find the educational environment supportive and structured. She has excelled at the school both socially and academically. The children are as supportive of their scholarly stars as they are of the star athletes or performers in their midst. I do think that Sage Park needs more parental involvement in the form of parent-teacher conferences, chaperoning opportiunities and in-class participation. Overall, I'd give the school a 85 - 90.

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.
