We are parents of two boys 10 & 8. I have told several individuals moving into the area that Northwood Elementary is like a private school. The boys are so happy and just love it. The teachers truly care. The Principal is top notch. I truly feel they are in the best distract. There is no reason to be on the East side. Hilton is the New and up and coming East Side.

Northwood Elementary is the best of the best! I have one child who made a smooth transition to middle school after six exceptional years at Northwood. My youngest is in the 4th grade there and thriving. The Hilton Central School District is heads and shoulders above most others in our area. I would never spend the unnecessary extra dollars to buy a home on the "east side" of Rochester, just because they claim to have the best schools. We love the community here in N. Greece/Hilton/Parma, and Northwood Elementary could not be better!

I am a mother with 2 sons at this school who have attended since they started kindergarten. there are a couple of teachers that may not have been the best, but I wouldn't consider them terrible either. other than that, I love this school and my kids love it too! the communication is great and everyone is very friendly. the principal, vice principal, counselors and occupational therapists are wonderful. I can't say enough good things about our experience at Northwood. compared to other districts in our area, I'm so glad we are in Hilton CSD and my children attend Northwood.

I've been very impressed with the open door policy of principal, vice principal and support staff. Also a very warm and welcoming environment for both new students and parents, with many opportunities for parent involvement. Also fair to say a high level of commitment from teachers that students learn and excell at their own pace. Couldn't be happier!

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.
