Glenmont Elementary is a great foundation that helps build a strong core to each and every student individually. The teachers are dedicated to the school & students. Students have the amazing opportunity to learn in an environment that is enriched with high educational programs. The school works hard in providing special events throughout the year which enforce additional educational, social & family time. Glenmont Elementary offers a well structured & balanced home for our students. I am a proud parent who can not ask for a more rounded & safe environment for my children to be a part of! Thank you Glenmont Elementary. You bring smiles to my family each & every day :-)

I love Glenmont Elementary School because of the wonderful teachers, the administration (including counselors and nurse), and, of course, our wonderful PTA. Between all these people, my daughter is greatly cared for, is getting a terrific education, and is learning how to care for herself, her peers, and the world and environment around her. I thank them all for their dedication and devotion to all the children in Glenmont!!

Glenmont has been a fabulous school for my children. The staff & faculty are very involved in the nurturing and growth of each individual child. Both of my children have had special needs assessments and the support offered by the district has been above and beyond what we expected. I recommend this elementary school completely with whole-hearted support.

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.
