They have the greatest programs, and they customize their schedules to fit their students. I used to be a level two student, but after they gave me Ms. Heintz for math, in eigth grade, and Mr. Signorelli in seventh grade, I'm a level four in the state test. They also have special programs for honors students, and special education. The district has the best music program in the state, and the best soccer team in the nation.

East Middle si a great school! I am a former student at East Middle and I can surely say that the teachers are great. They give each student a great amount of attention and make sure they understand everything. All the staff members are well qualified for their position. They know whats going to happen before it occurs. Parents are very much involved in their childrens school work and activities. This is a great school. Their music program is excellent all thanks to Ms. Helbock the woodwind teachers, she is fantastic. The orchestra teacher is great to! All of their activities are great! They only let you participate if your grades are up. This is a great school to send your kids!

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 2013-2014 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. At present 2013-14 results are available only for 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.
