Posted January 23, 2013

I have been very pleased with this school. My oldest has moved to the middle school and my younger child is now attending. We have seen an increase in the size of classes and some of the extracurricular activities being limited since the budget crunch but I still believe that the quality of education is very high. I am pleased with the parent to teacher communication and the district website is great for tracking your Childs education progress and contacting school officials. My eldest s first year here his teacher did not take advantage of the technology and was difficult to reach but his fifth grade teacher and now my younger child s third grade teacher utilize the web assets to keep parents involved and informed. I also have t comment on the parent involvement in this school; I have never seen anything like it until I moved here and am so impressed with how much the parents are involved with the school and teachers. When my job gave me the option to move on I declined due to the fact I was so happy with the schools to include North side.

Northside is a wonderful school. The teachers are very involved and plan many extra curricular activities. The school is progressive and forward thinking. Technology is advanced with many classrooms having SmartBoards. Principal is very open in communication and knows most parents by name. Nice learning environment.

My daughter attended third grade at Northside. The atmosphere was very loving and nurturing from the principal to the teachers. She absolutely loved it. The academics were in line with state standards and there were a variety of activities which she could participate in from chorus to after school programs. We loved this 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.
