I like this school. I mean it's OK. The education is good but there is some clliquey girls in the 5th grade.

I've had a wonderful year with my daughter in kindergarten. I love her teacher and the school. They do a lot of extras as a school too.

I bought a house on my street specifically so my kids would go to Lindbergh, it is the best school in the district! Excellent, teachers, principal and parent participation!

Lindbergh Elementary is an outstanding, impressive school. Both my children attend here and I continue to be so completely happy with how the school operates. There are so many extras that other kids in other schools do not get to experience. Faculty and staff are completely accessible for any reason. I feel my children are receiving a top notch, high quality, meaningful education.

A talented and caring faculty and staff with excellent enrichment programs. One cannot help but be impressed with their curriculum, and the safety is outstanding.

If I could have hand-picked a school for my daughters to begin their schooling, I could not have done any better. It has a dedicated and caring staff, many enrichment activities, and enough social events to make them know that school can be fun. As a teacher,myself,it's apparent to me when a school, such as Lindbergh, touches all the bases. Really, it's all the benefits of a private school in a public school system.

Lindbergh Elementary has a very good staff, and they provide great opportunities for children. It is by far the best elementary school in the district. Bravo!

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.
