This school should be named the champions of bullies and most of the staff turn and look the other way principal included. If your child is not great in sports, forget about it. very few good educators left in this school. I rate this principal -1 if it were possilble

As a current Ilion student I beleive that some of the rules are unnessary. Some of the teachers there are very kind and outgoing, but others can be harsh and don't care about the students, you can tell some of them hate their jobs and do whatever they can to avoid teenagers. Also the most recent and current principal, really wasn't like the one before. Overall, Ilion has a bit of a mess to clean up.

I don't think this school is as good as it can be. I think if the teachers and staff pay attention and make that connection with the students they can make a difference. They can maybe even cause problems not to happen. I think they can do and we can do it as the student body.

Ilion high school was great until the whole transitioning to a new principal era. I know students need to be disciplined, the new rules are ridiculous. The lack of connection is prevalent throughout the school system, it doesn't feel like the students are getting enough attention, only the troublemakers are.

I graduated from Ilion High School and up until my junior year I loved it. Then the school board started to not to care about the students. There is not enough passion in their job anymore. The school board needs to get a new principal and a new superindent. There is not enough communication between the school board and the parents. It is horrible being a student there.

One of my daughters attends Ilion High and although the teachers I have met are very good at their job I don't believe that there is enough communication between the parent and the teacher. I feel very strongly that there is not enough accountability towards students to like to start trouble. It seems to me that these students for the most part get away with the things that they do.

I am a former student at Ilion School and I believe that it is one of the best schools I have attended. Ilion does have it's share of problems but overall the staff is helpful and courteous and the teachers can really make a difference in a child's life.

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.
