This school is the best! I had some teachers who were a little controlling, but all in all, everybody was concerned with what was best for my son...the principal and other teachers helped my son to shine. He is now in middle school and the great foundation from Coolidge has helped to keep him on the Honor Roll. Thanks Coolidge!

I think Calvin Coolidge is a great school for children. My daughter has been there now for 2 1/2 years and it was the best decision I had ever made. The principal is absolutely wonderful and the teachers are definately qualified to teach our children. I couldn't ask for a better place for my child to go to school.

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.
