Posted December 18, 2013

My child has been going to PS 46 now for 5 years and will soon be graduating and PS 46 has been a great learning experience for him. Mrs. Goldberg is a very involved principal and it is through her involvement that the kids and school have succeeded so well. All of my sons teachers were fantastic and my son has progressed so much from when he initially started. The school has prepared him with the skills he needs to begin his next stage in middle school next year. I am grateful for what the school has achieved and I look forward to having my other two kids attend. My only wish is that the school would offer PreK so that my other two kids could start sooner.

Excellent quality teachers and students. Very safe walking to school. Never any crime for all the years I've lived here and my kids have gone to the school.

This school, from the principal Mrs. Goldberg on down to the paraprofessionals, is the best. You couldn't ask for a more loving, nurturing, caring, well run environment dedicated to learning. My boys are in fourth grade, and have gone since kindergarten. The school is also special in the services that are offered, with a range of therapists on site. If your kids need special help, this is a wonderful place for them to go.

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.

The NYC Department of Education asked parents, teachers and students about their school's learning environment. Results provide insight into school climate, such as whether the school is academically rigorous, safe, communicative and collaborative. Learn more

The information captured by the survey is designed to support a dialogue among all members of the school community about how to make the school a better place to learn. An overall category score is calculated for each respondent group (parents, teachers, or students) by averaging the scores of the questions within that survey category.

Category scores for each of the respondent groups are then combined to form overall category scores. Alongside the results for each school are the aggregated results across all NYC public schools, which are provided as a basis for comparisons.
