Great Neck North Middle School is a wonderful school. Academically, there is tutoring and help for all the student. Socially, there are many clubs and teams. There is little chance for student to "fall through the gap"

My daughter just finished 6th grade this past June. She had an amazing time and is learning a lot. The strong foundation she had from her elementary school at JFK has helped her excel. The amount of reading they get is incredible, but its all good.

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.
