for some reason bad reviews on this school are not posted, i have written a few and they never post them. my experience in this school was a nightmare, for military parents I don't suggest you enroll your kids here. Is not safe the staff is irresponsible, and your kids will be discriminated.The main purpose of going to school is learning but they are not going to find much of that here.

Antwerp is an okay school. The school has a safe and secure setting. However, I often find myself supplementing my sons education because of the weak curriculum. They do a good job exposing students to reading (in my opinion an accelerated pace would not hurt) but they definitely lack in the science and math department. My son's class has not done any science experiment to date. He's missing out on exposure to the vocabulary of that field and explanations for why and how things happen. In the kindergarten class they count but basic math could and should be applied more in the classroom setting. My son often complains of being bored at school because the teacher normally covers only reading and numbers. I wish they would think more out of the box when it came to course content. I think that would improve the school drastically.

I am impressed with Antwerp Primary. The teachers are very involved with the kids and show genuine interest in their educational success. The office staff are extremely helpful and friendly as well. My daughter is loving it - even if the bus ride is quite long.

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.
