Posted May 1, 2013

Academically sound school, however the big problem I see is the lack of privacy. Administration has no discretion, I personnally had a situation in which I thought I talked in confidence, a co-worker heard a "recap" of the conversation in the office and approached me out of concern. I didn't write a letter to the superintentent, although I should have. I'm relieved my child is now in the middle school and either the gossip is under control or I just don't hear it much.

The district area for this school is large. School seems to cater to select children whose parents work at the school or live immediately surrounding the school. Principal comes across as arrogant and condescending. Teachers do seem to genuinely care though.

This school is a very welcoming and caring atmosphere for students, parents and staff. Many smiles are exchanged- and parents are always welcome to come in and help out in any way.

My daughter is in the 3rd grade and her teacher is exceptional and a real asset to the school district

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 2012-2013 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. 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.
