Our school district is not like any other. Our dedicated teachers and staff take time with our children, give them the resources and the drive to succeed. It's awesome when your child wants to go back to their old school to say "thank you" to his/her old teachers for molding them into the young adults they now are. These are the East Moriches teachers!!

I moved to east moriches at the start of 8th grade. everyone was so nice there & i like how you have the options of which high school you wanna go to. even in the town of east moriches, its such a small town that everyone knows each other. even just moving here last year, i already know almost everyone in the town. i honestly think its a great school

Overall I feel the school is average. With anything there is always room for improvement. More extracurricular activities would be nice. Expansion of the musical department as far as offering string instruments would also be a nice choice for the children. I feel my child is in a safe environment while attending school. Parents could be more involved.

I think East Moriches Sschool is the best. The hole experience of it is great. Not only are the teachers great but is the whole staff! Also the principal really knows what she is doing and she knows everyone by name. In East Moriches School you are not just a I.D number you are a person, a individuale.(I am sorry if i spelt things wrong) And I should know as a student.

As a grandparent/guardian of three, I cannot praise the staff including teachers, aides, therapists, etc. enough. Even the nurse and cafeteria staff make the children feel special. The education they are receiving is outstanding. Ms Leeds, as principal, is involved on every level and, yes, she does know each child's name because she cares.


Posted September 24, 2003

Ms. Leeds is the kind of leader every school should have! She knows the name of every child in the building and takes no nonsense. She's says what she means and means what she says. You always know where you stand with her. The teachers at EMO care and are committed to their jobs. I could go on forever!! EMO is quality!

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.
