This is simply the best elementary school you can imagine. The teachers are creative and concerned. The art, phys ed and music engage the kids. A real sense of community. My kids love it.

With one of my daughter's going on to Wellwood, another completeing 4th grade next year at Fay El and one yet to attend in Fay El. I am nothing but impressed with this school, it's staff, student body, parental involvement and community. They have a positive energy, great attention to each students needs and learning abilities. They offer so many extras for students and lots of support for parents of Special Needs children. The best school my children have ever been to, and hopefully our life long school district.

Above average school. I am happy with academic atmosphere and individual attention given to my child.

The FM elementary schools are definitely better than the middle schools and far better than the high school. Neverthless, unncessary competition is put in the minds of FM elementary students. As an educator, I personally know the entire FM school district is overrated and if your child is an average learner 'good luck' getting help. I would recomment to you ESM or JD believe it or not.

The teachers at Fayetteville Elementary School are responsive to parental concerns and questions. The school has an excellent music, physical education, art, and curriculum resource program. Parents are very involved at every level, from day to day operations (eating lunch with their students) to SBT (Fay El's version of the PTA).

one of the best public schools around. Teachers are always helpful and very involved. Good mentoring program. Lots of after school activities, including foreign language and minicourses to introduce your child to new and interesting things.

Fayetteville Elementary is an excellent school. My daughter transferred from a private school and we have been thrilled with our decision to move her. The teachers are great. The enrichment and music programs are wonderful. The Phys. Ed. class is fun and educational. The prinipal has created a strong community that encourages respect for others and cooperation. The school also has a very high level of parental involvement and parent volunteers are well coordinated. I was also impressed with the transition program for new students. The mini-courses, language courses, and dance program offered as extracurricular classes were, fun, educational, and neither competitive nor high pressure. Finally, the student body and faculty/staff population are very stable with few leaving the community.

I have already sent two daughters through Fayetteville Elem. and couldn't be more delighted. My son will attend in the fall and with one in Wellwood and one at the High School, I am looking forward to coming back to Fay-El. The teachers are wonderful and so are the staff. We haven't moved from the area, after being given the opportunity, because of this district! It's wondeful place for your child to learn.

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.
