We have had nothing but positive experiences at Winslow. The staff is wonderful so far and Dr. Hyatt is amazing. She is visible and involved with the kids on a daily basis - so much different than every Principal when I was growing up! When our kids have had issues with bullying, the staff has been quick to address it. While our daughter excels on her own, our son struggles with school anxiety and school work. His teacher was quick to observe his difficulties and get him the extra help he needs to succeed. The school, district, and PTO offer many ways to become involved as a parent. In fact, our family has made amazing friendships with other families through volunteering. No school is ever 100% perfect, but Winslow feels like a community so much so that when it was time to move, we chose to move within the district because the kids didn't want to leave!

I am a parent with 3 soon to be 4 children at Winslow Elementary School. I am not happy at all with this school. There are a FEW good and helpful teachers at this school that I have come across. This school is not good with handling children with learning Disabilities. The main office ladies especially the main secretary is not a genuine nice person. I have also had problems with bulling too! I personally wouldn't recommend this school to anyone! My family and I are looking into re locating due to our problems with the school/district.

My children moved to Winslow from a neighboring district that was rated a "better" school. I have found the opposite to be true! The communication at Winslow is amazing. Staff and administration are not only true professionals but are also very caring, approachable people. I can't say enough about Winslow.

My daughter is currently in first grade at Winslow. We have had a wonderful experience so far. The teachers make learning interesting and fun, however there is good structure to the environment there as well. Principal Andrea Hyatt is very involved as well as the assistant principal and there are many great programs including the new PBIS positive behavior (BEE your best at Winslow. Can't say enough good things about this school!

My oldest daughter is in 5th grade and we have loved Winslow. I have a Kindergarten and 1st grader who love the school as well. The teachers are fabulous, open, and easy to talk to. The principal Mr. Springer is a very warm compassionate man who will be greatly missed after his retirement this year. He has done a wonderful job along with the teachers at making the school a fun and safe learning experience. A wonderful first step in my children's education.

My son is currently a 2nd grader at Winslow. I myself attended Winslow back in 1970-1976. Currently the school is K-5, and I think that is a good size. The teachers that I have encountered have been absolutely great! The administration and Parent/Teacher groups are very involved and supportive. My 5 year old will start K in the fall, and I am glad he will be at Winslow also. I have had no complaints - very supportive & nurturing to the younger group.

Very experienced and dedicated teachers! Some of our fondest memories were created here. We are thankful for the caring and wonderful staff -- all of the teachers, consultants and paraprofessionals-- make this a place children want to be!

I have never met a more dedicated and caring staff of teaching professionals anywhere like I have at Winslow. They are top notch. The Winslow staff works very hard to help students meet the increasing demands on today's educational standards, and yet they find time to have fun, too! Students leave this school well prepared for the challenges of secondary school.

Winslow is a great school, my son and daughter both attended and as a family, we have nothing but high regards for the teachers, aides and principals. Mr. Springer is great with the kids and treats them with respect. The school does a lot to get the parents involved too.

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.
