This is a standout school in a depressed area of Upstate NY. Teachers are caring and students are encouraged to excel and dream beyond the constraints of their environment. One of the best features of ECS is that it is a very small school, which allows students to develop mentoring relationships with the teachers and benefit from individual attention. For a small school, there is also an unexpectedly large number of extracurricular activities available. My main critique is that Edmeston needs to offer more Advanced Placement courses as increasing importance is being placed on this in admissions to four year colleges. However, overall, Edmeston is a very good school for its geographic area.

Quality of teachers vary greatly...Would like to see more open minded teachers... Music and art are secondary to sports, of which boys soccer and baseball rule supreme...Would like to see greater varieties of clubs, sports etc. Great parental and community involvement in the soccer and baseball! Ecs could use more programs for talented children..And more ap classes. Some school personnel could stand to smile much more than they do..Especially at the kids. They always appear grumpy.

Academic programs vary with teacher. Prejudice runs high as well as sexist attitudes. Elementary level better than Jr High and High were academia falls by the wayside with a tendency for nepotism perhaps a reflection of society as a whole.

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.
