Excellent administration, dedicated teachers, invigorating reading program, and child-centered instruction versus some other schools in the area which expect the kids to fit them rather than meeting the learning needs of the kids. Very pleased with the outcome.

I have a child who has been in this school since Kindergarten and is now in 4th grade. The school is the best in Cheektowaga regardless of what the rankings say. The staff are very friendly and compassionate. If I were to rate this school, it would be a 10 !

This school is excellent! Best in Cheektowaga, regardless of what the rankings say. You won't find another school with such dedicated and caring teachers. Principal is outstanding. Any kind of help your child needs they will provide (academically). It's amazing, can't praise it enough!

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.
