Most of these review are from 2009. Fast forward to 2016. The student to teacher ratio is averaging 25-28 students to 1 teacher with a revolving Teacher's Assistant among the 1st grade anyway. When you ask why this is, even though enrollment is up, you are supplied with a non-answer. Hopefully for the 2016-2017 school year, things will improve.

Teacher effectiveness: Neutral

Some are good, others should just retire. When it is no longer your passion, please just leave.


Amount of homework: Disagree

Why are K-1 grades receiving more work than third graders? This is a bit ridiculous.

This school is the 'Rolls royce' of public elementary schools. Enthusiastic, knowledgable, and people oriented teachers combined with a newer very nicely equipped building make for an amazing experience for youngsters.

Means alot historically to the neighborhood. Many of the locals have had children and themselves attend. Many scouting events and concerts took place. Excellent physicaly environment for the children since re-constructed.

The 'Disappointed!' parent's review is at best unreasonable. The school district and community are superior as evidenced by the standardized test scores, graduates going on to 4 year colleges and the level of parent involvement in school related and extracurricular activities (e.g. sports, scouting, music etc.). Kindergarten is 1/2 day, yet there are many programs available throughout the community available for Kindergarteners attending AM or PM class. Stating that 'private tutors' are the reason for the school rank and high test scores is an insult to one's intelligence. Its involved Parents and Faculty that educate superior students. If you can't or won't commit the time to become involved with your child's education, you won't be happy with any school district. Also, NOW is a great time to invest in local real estate.

This is a great school, hands down. Caring teachers and administration, beautiful faciity, great community spirit and values.

Disappointed! This school ranks high but what the scores don't tell you is that many students have private tutors. . . of course the test results will be better. The school starts late - 9:30am and the district before/after school is extremely limited. There simply aren't enough slots to fill the demand -- sadly, the feeling is that it is the 'parents problem' and that they need to make private arrangements for before AND after school care. It is almost impossible for both parents to work. The kindergarden prgram is a half day and not great. We spent money on a private 'kindergarden enrichment program' and our son learned more there! The private program absolutely outshined the school program. I would look at other (better) options before buying a house in this district. . . Northport, Elwood, Commack. Don't be fooled by the great ratings. . .

Fabulous school with a strong sense of community. They have amazing teachers who truly care about your child and his or her education needs.
