This is a Great school! Dedicated teachers, wonderful students. Many extra-curricular activities, including sports and clubs.

If you have a gifted child this school is great. If your child has special needs, this school is great. If your child is in the middle and not well-motivated and needs lots of help and attention to realize her or his potential, find another place - they really don't want anything to do with kids like that and expect to be in the school 24 hours a day to get any results in that situation because they'll say nice things but won't follow up.

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.
