Posted February 10, 2012

We moved specifically to this school district for the schools and it has been WELL worth it. Previously we had been sending both our kids to a Montessori school which was wonderful, but something we could not continue beyond kindergarten due to finances. Cornwall Elementary at Lee Road made us feel right at home from the start. The quality of the teachers we have had and the curriculums has impressed me. This feels very much like the quality I would expect in a private school and I am very gratefull we were able to move here. This school feels homey, yet is fairly big. There seems to be a stronger sense of community than our previous school district had. We are loving the school and I hope this is helpful for anyone trying to find a great school for your kids.

I loved Cornwall Elementary at Lee Road. My son made many great friends. The field trips were fabulous! I just can't say enough about how this school system has positively impacted my child and our family.

I feel my daughter received an excellent education at Lee Road Elementary. She loved her teachers and the parents are really involved. I am so glad we sent our daughter to this school.

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.
