i am very sad that the school is being worse and worse as more and more kids are refered as the burden of society and ignored after the long time principal left. With the new principal, more inexperienced teacher are getting in to make the situation worse.....

Lakeville suffers from an over-congestion of students. The faculty is overwhelmed by the ever increasing number of students, from a surge in Asian families upgrading from nearby Queens (e.g., Flushing, Little Neck and Bayside in particular). At Lakeville, each grade has roughly 9 classes, much larger than the other elementary schools in Great Neck, which have 3-5. As such, Lakeville had to move Kindergarten out to a different location (at Parkville with the pre-Ks). The parent community is fairly segmented and cliquey (families from working-class New Hyde Park in Queens zoned for Great Neck vs. affluent Lake Success vs. the others ). The teachers are, at times, frazzled and can come across as stressed. The student atmosphere is over competitive and parents can add to the tacky culture. The long-time principal, Barbara, retired this year, after earning a prestigious Blue Ribbon award, and has been replaced by Ms. Feldman.

Everyone child should have a place at a public school. How sad that this parent and so many others at Lakeville believe that children who need extra help have no place at Lakeville and are referred to as 'the burdens of society'. Lakeville is failing the students who need them most. These children are ignored and intervention is inappropriate. Many have simply needed a little extra help in the early years but due to poor intervention and lack of appropriate curriculum to address these needs, have developed more severe reading issues and, as a result, started lagging behind in content area subjects, as well. Unless you are an affluent, naturally bright child without any needs, don't go to Lakeville.

Lakeville Elementary School does not provide adequate intervention for struggling readers. Curriculum is outdated. The reading specialists do not correct reading difficulties nor implement programs, such as Wilson, correctly. Many children are below level and being ignored . Many parents have been forced to pay for private tutors or programs. Current research is not implemented and children in need lag behind.

Lakeville School is a wonderful school! The principal makes sure that every child's needs are met. There are 'regular academic classes' for the 'upper class children'. There are 'special education classes' for the 'middle class children'. Personal attention is guaranteed for the 'working class children' at the school. If the school is unable to meet the 'working class children' needs, they will refer them to a special education school. The burdens of society sadly have no place in this school.

The best school in town. Mrs. Raber makes this the best place academically and socially for any child. there are special programs for the gifted, for those who need extra help and everyone in between. I have had three children go through this school (one still there) and they have had the most incredible teachers and learning experiences.

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.
