Horrible! My husband is military and our children got stuck at this school for a few years. The E.O. on Fort Drum has flagged this as a terrible school district. The school liaison on Fort Drum that I spoke with even yanked her own children out of this school. If you have a choice DO NOT send your children here! Only came across one single teacher that was good and he was leaving the school the year we thankful got relocated.

I feel that East Side School staff is friendly, knowledgeable. We are a military family and assumed that the small town would be prejudice to us......they were just the opposite. They have welcomed my entire family and made us feel very comfortable about our child's education. Kudos to East Side teachers. Keep up the good work!

East Side is a warm and welcoming place for our children to be. The staff is a team of first-rate professionals that does a fantastic job while truly caring for the children. The education our children receive extends beyond what the State requires; teaching students about responsibility for their actions, how to solve problems by talking it out, how to be respectful, trustworthy, and caring. The faculty goes above and beyond for each student; trying to find new approaches to education so that each child's needs are met and the district provides many opportunities to them for professional development. I have found all staff and admnistration, from the cafeteria monitors to the Superintendent, to be extremely hepful and caring. Great place to be!

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.
