I am a student here and I would not recommend this school for anyone with high grades. There is no opportunity here and the school only pay attention to the ones who need special help or is low on average. Sure they know who you are but there is no classes where you get the help YOU need. Their only reasonable option is to skip a grade. Plus the childrens behavior is horrendous. The superintendent tries but honestly, these kids never listen. Ever.

Communication within the school is very poor. Discipline is inconsistant and the school on an average day is total chaos.

Teachers are very good. But, the kids are out of hand. They have no respect for teachers and treat new kids terribly. I would not recommend sending a new child to the middle school. My child was threatened many times by students in class on a daily basis. We moved out of the district, went to North Colonie and the problems went away immediately. Do not waste your time in Heatly. They staff did not prevent the bullying. The kids do what they want.

I attended Heatly from K-12. It's honestly a good school and the teachers are great. Yes the school has its share of issues but honestly...what school doesn't? I think overall its a good school to attend with small classes allowing kids one on one attention.

I can only comment on the Elementary Teachers and staff. I have been very pleased with the teaching staff and their outreach to parents and students. The Elementary Principal could take some lessons from the wonderful teachers, because her abilities, communication and outreach is horrendous!

I like the school, but some of the students have nasty attitudes. It it very clicky and I would not recommended it for a new student going into middle school. There a a few parents who let their children do and say what they want.

I feel this school has a wonderful ability to provide children w/ the attention they need! The wonderful connection a teacher can make w/ a smaller class should not go unnoticed! This is a safe small school!

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.
