Andover school is fantastic... The staff and faculty at the school sincerely care about the well being and education of each child... I am so glad that children have the opportunity to attend there!

My son goes to K at this school. The teacher is wonderful and they do a lot of really neat things, mostly hands on stuff. For being a small town school, I could not ask for a better one. I know a lot of parents who's kids go there or have graduated and they all say they like the school, even the kids will tell you they like it. I know a lot of the teachers that work there and they enjoy working there also. They have many great programs. I have nothing bad to say about this school.

I rate this school at a 3. The building and grounds are nice, but what counts is the education and this school lacks in this. Grades k-5 are great, but once you hit the 6th grade and high school it is all down hill. There is a select few of high school teachers that do the job well, the rest are very unprofessional and should not be in the teaching field. If you are looking for a great school for your kids that reward the hard working and encourge kids to work hard in a positive way... look around this one is not it!

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.
