I love attending ABGS Middle school the Scholl sis huge most of the children there are very nice and the teachers and principals really care for us I almost cried when I found out that I almost had to go to a different school and I think the school would have the same effect on any child that gave the school a chance

I go to A.B.G.S. middle school so i know how good it is. The teachers care about every childs education even if they like it, want it , or not. the girls, and boys gym including locker rooms are seperated. Academic programs are fun and educational.They have after school program's. They even provide snacks in the after school programs. They have fun art teachers. They even let you do projects in which you paint and research the painter who made the painting that you are making. Each quarter of the school year they would play a new sport, like basketball, soccer and so on.Every time a child acts up in class they would the parents and tell them what their child is doing and if he/she is behaving.

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.
