I have found Hinsdale school to be very far behind. I have a daughter that attended school in another state then after a move she is now going to hinsdale and they are alot farther behind than her old school. My daughter has gotten extra help in her reading and it hasnt helped her at all. Hinsdale has no pto for parent involvement. Hinsdale is a clean school but I think my daughter would be better off going to a school where she can get more direct help and hinsdale just cant offer her what she needs.

Hinsdale school is way behind the other schools in this state and most other states. Hinsdale offers no PTO for parent involvement. Test scores are lower than most other schools as well. Not impressed.

I live in Hinsdale School District and have two children. One very bright a self learner- no problems with school. The other needs extra help. Hinsdale School, as I believe all NY State public schools removed the phonics program. Some children including my youngest need this and needed to be taught how to read by learning the sounds of the letters etc. Instead Hinsdale School taught him/her to read by looking at the picture clues. He no longer goes to school there as FINALLY when he got through 3rd grade, Hinsdale decided that they didn't have the 'programs' to teach him to read. He was shifted to another school and put in a 'program' that I dare say hasn't helped his education. Yes, he is more confident, but he could have succeeded if the time was taken in the beginning of his education to teach him properly.

Excellent educators and friendly faculty

The k-4 program is one of the best in the state with creative and individual attention to students. However, there is no parent program like PTA or PTO! Does that explain student success rates?

I am appalled comparing Hinsdale's EAL scores with other schools. The Adminstration continues to tell us our students are gaining top scores on these tests, but the comparison with other area schools does not support this. As the Adminstration continues to grow, it seems our children our suffering. Perhaps some of the money we spend to have both a Superintendent and a Principal would be better allocated to the classrooms.

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.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 New York used the New York State Regents Examinations to test high school students in English, math, global history and geography, US history and government, living environment, chemistry, Earth science and physics. Students must take at least five Regents Exams in order to graduate. Scores of 65 and above are passing; scores of 55 and above earn credit toward a local diploma (with the approval of the local board of education). The goal is for all students to pass the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 New York used the New York State Regents Examinations to test high school students in English, math, global history and geography, US history and government, living environment, chemistry, Earth science and physics. Students must take at least five Regents Exams in order to graduate. Scores of 65 and above are passing; scores of 55 and above earn credit toward a local diploma (with the approval of the local board of education). The goal is for all students to pass the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the New York Department of Education. If there are fewer than 5 students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.
