My kids went to Roosevelt and I hope they don't herd the kids in and out like animals like when my kids were in school

It's not bad for a city school. However, when compared to the average quality of elementary schools in the state of New York, T.R. Elementary is lacking.

I think teddy is the best. my children are excelling and learning they can be better with positive reenforcement. there are so many diiferent arts and music additives. I feel the arts are what's lacking. mr's crounse and mrs. kapinus are the best thing sice the wheel and the rest of the staff kudos. if you are thinking of binghamton city school district, for your children also know there is a free clinic with a nurse practitioner and a dental hygeinist. roosevelt is fisrt on my list. i am saddened by the thought of my fourth grader leaving in two years. I love theodore roosevelt school.

What a caring, positive, enthusiastic school. The staff challenges students and does wonderful things with challenging kids! They offer many, many exciting activities for the kids. It is truly a 'diamond in the rough'.

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. 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.
