I went to this school and this school is bad. They teachers are okay but the staff that is suppose to help you with a situation dont help at all. The pick sides and then talk about you to others. D O N O T S E N D Y O U C H I L D T O V I L L A G E A C A D E M Y

Extremely low student achievement and high turnover rate for teachers. No teacher wants to stay at this school because of the culture that is established which is one of dictatorship. Less than 20% of all students are meeting proficiency. Sad to say but the principal intimidates teachers with U ratings; teachers are expected to forget about their entire lives and live solely for the school. Instead of focusing on instruction, more attention is placed on bulletin boards and school events.

LOve ms.lee 605 m.w and allllll the teachers chiao andd there are not lots of fights but the 8th grade tend to pick on 6th and 7th


Posted November 15, 2010

Stay away from the school both teachers and parents. Do not send your child here. Lots of fights in the school and the principal has no idea of running a school. She spends her time micromanaging and making the teachers' lives miserable instead of trying to find ways to improve her school. Send her back to the principal's academy.

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.

The NYC Department of Education asked parents, teachers and students about their school's learning environment. Results provide insight into school climate, such as whether the school is academically rigorous, safe, communicative and collaborative. Learn more

The information captured by the survey is designed to support a dialogue among all members of the school community about how to make the school a better place to learn. An overall category score is calculated for each respondent group (parents, teachers, or students) by averaging the scores of the questions within that survey category.

Category scores for each of the respondent groups are then combined to form overall category scores. Alongside the results for each school are the aggregated results across all NYC public schools, which are provided as a basis for comparisons.
