Our experience at Concord Road was definitely not the best. While our experience with the teachers were mixed, the worst grade was fourth grade when my kid's teacher was absent every week, impatient, bias, unhappy with what they do, resentful to criticism, and discouraging to students. We moved here years ago for the school and relatively low housing price but it was a mistake too late to fix.

Concord Road is a very rich and nurturing environment that encourages excellence and supports a wide range of learning styles and competencies. Great teachers and parents, and I hear the administration is very caring and professional as well.

Ardsley schools are overrated. Look elsewhere there are better schools in the area. Had kids in all three schools.

My family just left NYC and moved to Ardsley. It was a big change, but we couldn't be happier! I am so impressed with my son's first grade teacher, Mrs. Sargis. She is very organized, reaches out to each students and my son has learned so much even in only in his first month of school. He comes home every day and expresses his joy of learning something new, library or gym or science time! The principal is very nice and focused on giving children the best school experience!.

I have 3 kids in the school and I am very impressed at how much they are learning nad how well prepared they are with each level they move thorugh. My oldest child is moving on to middle school and I have no doubts she is prepared. They teach students a great deal and also teach them to be good people.

Layne Hudes is the principal and she is the best. She is responsive and gives parents time to talk or e-mail her any concerns.

I found Concord Road to be extremely nurturing.My daughter loves school and loves learning. The teachers she's had were all excellent and I found the school was really good at matching students personalities with teaching style. They have an excellent after-school program. I was very pleased with Concord Road.

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.
