Excellent teachers Strong principal/school leadership Challenging academic programs This school, (i am going to right now) is amazing, the entire ditrict is! I love how the teachers stay after almost everday to help students get grades up, there are a bunch of extra curricular activities, like book club, nordic ski club, lego club, shess club and millions of others i can't think of but this is an amazing district we have an awesome enviorment for teens, and the principle and techers interact with the students and parents than most schools.

I feel very lucky to live in this school district. It is a district which welcomes all stakeholders to get involved in decision making. The administration values communication, is open to parent perspectives and is focused on 21st century learning and preparing our children for the future. I have a high schooler, middle schooler and elementary age child. We've been in every school in this district and they are all great!

The school district is awesome!!! My kids are going into second and third grade this fall. Couldn't have picked a better district! What a great mix of kids and families.

This entire school district is spiraling downwards. There has recently been a mass change in the administration which could go both ways. The new superintendent is in no way better than the previous. There is a massive drug problem that goes ignored, more and more students are engaging in dangerous behavior, the guidance offices are a joke and tax money is being spent unwisely. The teachers are highly underpaid and have been dwindling in quality for years. Basically, HF-L is any over-taxed, over-politicized suburb district.

I love this school. The new principal is terrific. My child has a lot of support ensuring his success! He is has been on honor roll since he began here. The school is modern in it's parent/home communication. There are a lot of activities/clubs. The kids in our district are like family.

I am very pleased with this schools work. Almost every one if the childeren there get there work done. I know by coming into this school. I think that no one should be dissapointed with this school it is in one of the highest rankings of schools in the district. From experience the teachers work their hardest to get the children ready for exams or test's. All of the schools in HF-L have very nice buildings and surroundings for the students.

Overall, we are disappointed in the quality of the teachers, especially given the high school taxes. The teachers pressure you into drugging your child, instead of the teacher working harder and trying different strategies to reach these kids. Also, we have seen a lot of new teachers, and other teachers get pregnant and leave mid-year. This is pretty disruptive to grades 5 and below. Of course there are some good teachers too, but again - overall, we have not been impressed... The buildings are nice, and they have a large sports field, but that is not a very important aspect of a school to us.

I was not displeased with the Middle School under our Superintendent and her Board snuck in (without letting the community know) laptops for each and every 6th, 7th and 8th grader. This will mean even higher taxes for us. Eventually, your children will be reading and doing all of their writing on a computer. No more books or paper needed. I was happy, but when this program is fully implemented, they are going to do a lot of damage. I will need to look into other alternatives for my incoming 6th grader but with the taxes I'm paying, can't afford private schools. We'll have to pack up and move. Just watch the Superintendent and her Board (not the taxpayers). They're sneaky and do what they want. Good luck.

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.
