I don't agree with 'parent involvement' ,it has four stars. My opinion,one star.Parents wants to know how their kids are at school. We hope to have parents day or picnic and so on. Especially,small age like kindergarten ,1st grade ,2nd grade. But I appriciate my son meet a wonderful teachers. Just I feel sad not to be able to see my son at school.I am trying to volunteer but. Public school must be opened,more.( I know about seculity and safe). Is school for ONLY study? I wold like to ask it principal and teachers. I came from other country. So if I have rude question I am soory.

My son unfortunately sufferes from ADHD . The teachers and staff are not trained enough on helping Children with special needs. We moved out of the district my son Was just passed threw the cracks. Even though the staff is nice And friendly that's not the point. My son is very happy we moved. Allot of children where bullying him and no one did anything about it. :(

The pirincipal is wondeful and so are the teachers. The principal assists every morning in helping the children get from the cars & buses into school and greets everyone. He also has a 'quote of the day (or week) which is given to inspire or teach the children. Wonderful school!!!

Since we moved to this district my daughter has done great in school and enjoys going to school every day. Her grades have improved and so has her attitude towards school in general. We have gotten very lucky and she received a spot in one the most loved third grade teachers classes he he has been wonderful with her. She enjoys all of her after school activities and looks forward to returning to school next year. Everyone who works in the school are great and we are very proud to be a part of this wonderful community.

I have 2 children in this school. All of the teachers are wonderful and very caring of their students. I think it is great that the principal knows each and every student by name and also the names of the parents. There are a lot of after school programs available for students in all grades which helps keep the friendships formed. This school also has small class sizes which I feel makes learning better.

Pulaski is a school filled with wonderful students, teachers and involved parents. Students enjoy afterschool activities, learn and practice character education. PTA offers a high level of support to the staff and students and seeks ways to make a difference in the education and activities for our students.

My son is in the 4th grade, the principal is out there every morning greeting the children by name and saying hello to the parents by last name. The teachers are also great and so are the many programs they have for the children!

I have 2 children attending this school. The prinipal makes it a point to know each and every child and parent by name. The teachers are wonderful. They have many programs both during and after school sponsored by the PTA or the staff. My kids love to go to 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 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.
