This is an excellent school. The staff is like family. My daughter was on the honor roll for four year. She was able with tutoring to graduate early and is now in college. If your child is struggling the teacher will work late or come in on the weekend to help them. Just a wonderful school.

I attend this school, and am an 8th grader there. I have been coming here ever since 6th grade, and have had no trouble. This school has many afterschool activities like swimming in the pool, basketball, soccer, band chorus, and many more.

Thank goodness my sons elementary school guidance coucelor told me about East NY Family Acedemy. It is a godsend. Close interactive environments and small classes made this school one of my sons top priorities. Plus, after middle school, you wouldnt have to look far for a great High school. Its all right there. It is a small school thats making a big sound. I recommend that every child experiences what East NY Family Academy has to offer.

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.

The NYC Department of Education asked parents, teachers and students about their school's learning environment. Results provide insight into school climate, such as whether the school is academically rigorous, safe, communicative and collaborative. Learn more

The information captured by the survey is designed to support a dialogue among all members of the school community about how to make the school a better place to learn. An overall category score is calculated for each respondent group (parents, teachers, or students) by averaging the scores of the questions within that survey category.

Category scores for each of the respondent groups are then combined to form overall category scores. Alongside the results for each school are the aggregated results across all NYC public schools, which are provided as a basis for comparisons.
