Our school has a great atmosphere of helping each individual student. We are always striving to do the best for each student. If our school had more access to technology we could even do more to help each child.
—Submitted by a teacher

Because kids are treated as an investment in music,sports and grades.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted November 22, 2008

I had 3 children through this school system, it has issues but they do offer lots of programs for the kids. Parents are not treated as a member of the team, but as a nuisance to be tolerated, and that's the main reason I gave it a lower rating.

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.
