Hampton Bays Middle School Is amazing. It's a newly built green school and it's so clean and beautiful. Some of the teachers are great you just have to get on their good side! The only thing I don't like About the school is that some of the teachers don't teach right. They'll either go to fast or explain something that will still be confusing after the explain it. The principal Mr.Schug is amazing and a really nice guy. And you'll LOVE Mr Stype when u get to 7th and 8th grade. Some of the teachers teach amazingly though and they'll have an amazing format of teaching and explain everything thoroughly. I LOVE HBMS and it's the best school in the district. The kids in SH and WH might argue that their district is better, but trust me their NOT. Go Baymen!!!

My son graduated HB middle school 2012. All I have is praise for the teachers staff members & administration. It is the first "Green School" on Long Island. The staff and faculty are a group of people who care about our children. They will go that extra mile. The middle school has excellent teachers and most, who love their jobs. The Washington trip will never be forgotten. The students enjoyed spending time with their teachers on a different playing ground. Not just as educators but as awesome people too! Our kind and caring Super of HB Schools was among the chaperones and he added an amazing twist to the trip. Hampton Bays, YOU ROCK!

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.
