Our school is the best. Our principle Mrs. Flynn sets up a beautiful seasonal display that greats everyone as soon as they walk in. The teachers truly care about the children. Even during the state tests they did everything they could to keep the stress level low, despite the fact that the tests effect their evaluations. They spend extra time and offer extra help when kids need it. They have taken such good care and shown such great interest in my daughters success, I am constantly touched. My daughter has special needs and her teachers and the principle have taken the time to meet with me several times during the year in order to share observations and offer suggestions. I am truly blessed to be in such a wonderful school. I know that with $5,000 the school would institute some great programs for the kids. Maybe fix computers that we desperately need.

We have been in Nokomis for 3 years now. It is like sending my child to a private school. The teachers are well qualified. They go above and beyond for thier students. They offer extra help when needed. My children get a quality education. The principle is 100% for her students. I enjoy the p.t.a and extra programs that my children are offered.Nokomis is an exeptional sachem elementary school. The only complaint I would have is the childrens playground is in dire need to be updated and added on to.

Some of the young teachers tend to think they are dealing with high school students. Quick to criticize then help.

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.
