Spings school is 66% Spanish students and offers children a place where they can learn so much about many cultures. It's a great community school and goes beyond teaching by also having cultural dinner nights, beach parties, fairs and book events to name a few. It truly takes a village to raise a child, and as a single mom there is such a community feel to this school that I have to brag.

Springs School is a great school. Love their buddy and natural helper programs.

The teachers are dedicated. They teach the children to work together and yet think for themselves. The 4th grade gets create and perform their own opera. Every day k-5 has a morning meeting called Spirit Meet to celebrate birthdays, have the pledge, announcements, and to give out awards on Fridays for positive reinforcement. They also ofter AP science and math for students who qualify. There are so many other great things about Springs School I can't list them all.

Our school has some of the most dedicated teachers and staff of any school. They are generous with their time, enthusiastic and creative! They teach while making it fun to learn for the children and they try to keep the parents involved. We should all help them in any way we can to help our children.

It's a great, close knit community that looks after each other. The children are taught daily about caring about each other, being good citizens and the local and global environment. My son loves it!

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.
