It's a small school in a small community. Everyone knows everyone and we all look out for each other.

I understand what the previous parent said my oldest went through the same with 11th grade math teachers. It was hard on him. But I am very happy with the school . I cannot tell you in words how much my 2 love the school. My youngest particapated in a special camp at Fredonia state after being nominated by his math teacher. I think there were 6 kids from Brocton that went. Its a wonderful scholl and the communication has not been a problem. I highly recommend Brocton!

My 2 children started at this school and since then we have not a very good experience at all. My son had three different teachers in his first year alone as the teachers kept going on leave after a few months. It was making the home to school adjustment very difficult for him. This has had a negative effect on his academic achievments that has lasted to this day. I feel there is poor comunication between parents and staff. The parents wishes are not considered as much as they should be in making decisions about the childs direction in education. In my opinion the push to recieve good state scores has left an unfortunatly large number of the students in a very frustrating situation where they are 'classified' and given busy work.

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.
