My child has been a student at this school for 3 years, We have been trying to get him out of the school for many reasons. First being the other student and the poor parenting households they come from. Second the lack of leadership, this school year there was 3 different principals and no one had a clue what was going on. Third Most of the staff seemed just a ghetto as the parents that bought there children there. This school offers no recreational activities for the students what so ever. I must say there was a few dedicated teachers but the majority seemed not to care because the parents of the students did not care. I feel my child has lost a tremendous amount of precious time in that school, and I hope to gain a better quality education for him at another school.

All of the teachers ,aids, and the principal are great. If your child having a problem in any areas they take full action to help there students so that can sucessfull. Mrs Davis is the principal and she is a blessing to me, and the parents that lives in the area. You can talk to her about any thing so i highly suggest this school to all parents. Mrs.Boatright God Bless.

About the tests


Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the New York State Department of Instruction implemented new assessments designed to be aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The new standards for proficiency in these subjects 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. See this letter from New York's Commissioner of Education for more information on these changes.

In 2013-2014 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in Science. At present 2013-14 results are available only for English language arts and math. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New York. The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.
