I love everyone and everything about this school. At all times there is someone ready to help or direct you to someone that can help you. My grandson will be entering the fourth grade this year. The teachers are all excellent and because of that my grandson is in the Tag program. The principle and his staff do an excellent job. The prnciple and assistant principle are hands on. They know all of their students Simply the Best!!!!!!.

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.
