Worst School ever, I believe the teachers are good. Most educators take pride in their work. Leadership can be the worst motivator in most cases. My daughter is out of that school, have to pay for private schooling to protect my child from being targeted and judged by leadership in the school. Systematically destroying children by prejudice tactics.

Its not the best school but the teachers are nice and they do try to make the school a whole lot of fun for every students so I wouldn't say its the worst school

I can't describe how horrible this district is. All I can say is that I'm surprised the rating isn't at least a 2. I am SO happy to be leaving for Mineola this summer!

horrible school. horrible teachers. horrible education. i use to attend this school and all i can remember from my experience here are hallway fights, uncontrolled classes, and security guards everywhere i looked. I received high A's in all my classes, but was never acknowledged by my grades, teachers were not rewarding of academic achievments. school, and i reMy parents quickly took me out of that reccomend you do your kids a favor and warn them about the on going issues in this school.

So far I am very pleased with this school. I was nervous about my daughter starting 6th grade here. I later found out they keep the 6th graders mostly in one area of the school, away from the older kids. I feel this school offers many quality after school programs and a personable staff. The only bad incident worth telling was of a fight between two boys in the hallway that my daughter was walking in. She ended up between one boy and the wall- and quite a bump on the head. Although it's not a nice thing to write about, the staff did deal with it well and took great care of my daughter. So I am hopeful the rest of the year goes well.

I have to agree with the other feed back. I feel that there is a dual standard for treating students. Some teachers have no control over there classes and they really don't seem to care. The students seem to run the classes. I also have found many of the teachers are concerned about their students but it is hard to keep control with many of the out of control students.

I have two children in the middle school, one will be going into the highschool. I don't beleive that the rules they enforce apply to all the students some are allowed to do as they please where if another student does the same thing they end up with out of school suspension. Which is not right for a child to feel like he or she is being singled out all the time. also I fell the teachers should be able to controll what they are saying to the students. I have had a teacher make some very personal comments to my children(in a nasty way) and then can't understand why the student doesn't want to be in the class with a adult(?) like that most children do have feelings that get hurt. I thought they went into the field of education to help students not rip them apart.

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.
