My daughter is completing first grade at Brooks Hill, and the one word I would use to describe the atmosphere and environment there is 'joyful.' Her teachers so far have been caring and dedicated and have done so much to make school a happy, nurturing, and fun place to learn. It is truly a child-entered school and my daughter's individual needs have consistently been met. The administrative and support staff are exeptional as well. My daughter is excited every day in anticipation of what the school day will bring, and she comes home excited to fill me in on her day. Great job!

Brookshill has been a great school for my children. The teachers really enjoy teaching and there is alot of parent involvement. The prinicipals are very visible and willing to make changes when needed.

Brooks Hill School provides students and parents a 'close knit community'. With an average of four or five classrooms per grade, both the kids and parents get to know one another on a more personal level than they might if involved with a larger school. Parent involvement is encouraged and the teachers work very well with parents. I believe that the kids benefit greatly from high level parent participation. My children have developed great friendships as a result of the many wonderful benefits that this 'close knit community' provides. When our kids have had difficulties, the responsiveness and corrective actions by both teachers and administrators have been exceptional. They care and it shows!

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.
