This school is wonderful. I went here from 1991-1995 and now my daughter attends the school. If I have a problem, it is promptly addressed and taken care of in an appropriate manner and I am completely satisfied with the education my daughter is receiving. I love the staff and feel welcomed whenever I visit, which is frequent as I am also a member of the PTA board.

The Bayview Avenue School is a nuturing environment for all students. All staff members are strongly committed to providing the best instruction for students, whether they are in need of academic support or thirsting for enrichment. It is not unusual for staff to give freely of their own time to work collaboratively in planning curriculum and lessons that motivate our students to succeed. Our PTA and Site Based Management Team meet regularly to plan and organize after school, and evening activities that are well attended by students, families and staff. It is no surprise that Bayview has been recognized as a high performing gap closing school. It is an honor to be part of this educational institution.

I am a single mom of five boys and my 9,8,&7 year old is in Bayview, and being I am careful how my kids are treated and taught and comfortable, well Bayview is the school the principal knows all students and acknowledge each and every child whether there is an issue or an accomplishment. I feel like the staff at this school allow kids to feel as if they are in a comfortable environment., all kids are treated as if they are the children of the staff.. my son's have improved so much academically that it helps me out knowing the hard part is taking care of each and every day by the wonderful staff at Bayview arts and science. Thank You staff

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.
