Hewlett is by far one of the best schools in one of the best districts on Long Island. The teachers are caring and involved. Extracurricular activities are wonderful, of course there are fees for all. The school has recently been renovated within the last 5 years or so and it is a beautiful school inside and out. The only disappointment I have encountered when dealing with this school is that since our district is a quite wealthy one, wealthy families are catered to, leaving those of us who are not among the wealthy having to be aggressive when it comes to our childrens education. In other words, if there is any problem, and if you are not in their faces, you are invisible.

This is a very warm, attentive, academic environment. The building is bright and invites learning at all levels. The Principal and Assistant Principal make it their business to get to know all the children personally, and strive to educated at a higher level of learning.

An exceptional environment. Not only because of its high quality academics and staff, but because of the concern and caring everyone at the school shows about the children. At Hewlett, the children are truly first, and it shows!

I had foster chidren enrolled here for 1 year. The guidance counselor and wocial worker made sure that they were introduced to the children and visited their classrooms once a week to see how they were doing. The teachers were wonderful and concerned.

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.
