My son went to EM Baker for Kindergarten in Sep 2013 as a 5-year old. He enjoyed it a lot. He made friends to all classmates, he likes the teacher, he respects his teachers more than parents, and he likes the various classes as well. Specifically he has grown into a good habit of reading and writing, which we know is a key emphasis of the Baker school curriculum. We can tell his teacher loves the students a lot. She pays attention to great details of every aspect of each student's life. We feel our son is being taken care of well. One thing I wish my son has more exposure to is computer education.

My children are no longer in elementary school but if I had a child this is where I would want them. The education is exceptional and the environment is warm friendly and caring. IT is a happy place to learn and the administration and faculty are very accessible. Great Neck is lucky to have EM Baker

This school is downgrading. Many students and their families don't have interest to study hard. Teachers wear Louis Vuitton bags and doesn't pay attention to your child. Teachers talk about jewish holidays too much - they forget that this is public school - not religious- and now more asian than jewish kids are there.

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.
