My children just graduated from Pembroke and were in the school district since third grade. I was very pleased with many things. There was great communication between school and home and the community spirit is high, even though it is a small town. Pembroke has many teachers who are 'gems' and truly care for their students. Year over year I noticed the school improve their advanced placed course offerings. The decision makers are 'looking ahead' which will better prepare the students for college and life after high school. It seemed this change took place 3-4 years ago. I would have given 5 stars if my family would have benefited sooner from this positive trend. Great value for the money (taxes)!

Great teachers, they are always available for discussions of my daughters needs. I love the small class size , we moved here from Erie, Pa and it is a great releif to see small er class sizes for more teacher student involvement.

I am not a parent, I am a high school Junior this year. I love this school and I would never want to go anywhere else. It is a small school, but all of the teachers are great. That sports are amazing at Pembroke. The students are nice, and you have one-on-one teacher to student relation. With most of the teachers you can talk to as if they were your best friend. But in the classroom, they will always be the teacher, and we all respect that. Overall, Pembroke is a great high school to go to.

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 2013-2014 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. At present 2013-14 results are available only for English language arts and math. 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.
