The principal, assistant principal and teachers really work at it to make sure the kids get the most when they are in that school.

The teachers a Susan E. Wiley are wonderful and do an extra ordinary job in spite of a new principal.

I have two children in SEW - one completed 4th and the other completed 1st. SEW is a wonderful school and faculty members seem committed to the children. SEW has a great music program, the band is awesome! There are different sports programs that are offered throughout the district. There are computers in the classrooms and many opportunities for children to learn. The principal seems committed to the students - I haven't had any interaction with him but he Asst. Principal is great! I have to actually pull my children out b/c we're moving out of state - prayerfully, I'll find a comparable school in Georgia.

My child is in the dual language program. It was made to sound as if the class would consist of 50%english speaking children and 50% spanish speaking children. However, it seems like half the class is bilingual and the other half is only english speaking. The kindergrten teacher is strict and my child already hates school. I thought kindergarten was supposed to be fun and prepare them for a lifetime of learning instead my child fears future schooling.

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.
