This place was really awful... I recently moved into this district and was horrified when I got here. The teaching method is set back by a couple of years... the technology was in horrific shape and most of the equipment was in either horrible shape or broken. Most of the teachers here are fairly nice but there are a few exceptions. 2 out of four of my teachers were pretty rude and plain out mean. My 3 teacher didn't know how to stop talking so it was very hard to complete work, I found myself having to start ahead while she was talking about who knows what. I also didn't feel very safe, we had part of the playground burnt down near the end of the year. Many people believe it was arson and I'm not so doubtful it wasn't. Overall I was not happy with my experience here at all. I would strongly suggest you not go here and someone should really take away the 8 out of ten rating. this notion isn't just from my perspective but from a few close friends as well.

A wonderful , nurturing environment. The teachers and staff are great. The kids are busy learning and growing all the time. The best part of 6th grade is the trip to Greenkill. The kids enjoy it do much and it's and experience they talk about throughout their life.

This school is amazing! The school now, is every 5th and 6th grader in the district! The teachers are totally up to date, the halls are clean and cheerful and the students are doing great. The leadership - Mrs. Stokers and Mr. Stein Rock!!! We especially love Mr. Stein! Great communications to the parents, great education and a great social environment - and the music program is amazing! They use technology and good old fashioned teaching and caring! They do so much there, I don't have enough room to write it all!

As you can see on the statewide testing results, the school has improved past years academically. It is a larger school than the K-3 schools in Huntington, as it combines Southdown and Jefferson students, so it is daunting for 4th graders. However, the school tries best to ease the transition. The staff is dedicated and Dr. Card, the principal is firm and fair. There are lots of activities to make the learning interesting. One thing that can be beneficial to parents would be more communications on all the programs, clubs, activities ahead of the schedule.

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.
