The parking lot for dropoff at this school is a disaster waiting to happen. Cars are forced into a single line dropoff that takes on the average 10 minutes. No one is available to direct traffic. No alternate parking is available for walk in, as one available lane is "bus-only" and any other spaces are blocked by the line of drop-off cars. The principal is aware of the problem and has done nothing to address the situation.

Excellent learning environment with fantastic principal. The school tries to keep the class size from becoming too large and there are many after school activities.

I have been very pleased with the education my child has received at Anne Hutchinson. THe principal is wonderful and the teachers are dedicated professionals who take an interest in each individual child. A wonderful school!

I am a parent at the Eastchester school district and I am disappointed in the school system. I have two children and one of them does well but the other one has often needed help. I have been requesting extra services from the school since kindergarden and now my child is in 4th grade and still struggles. I'm doubting the Eastchester school disrict and hoping it's not too late for my child to get help. I think I might have to move to a different district just so my child can actually get help.

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.
