i love irvington it is a great school,and i recommend it to students of all different learning abilities

I would like to commend Mrs. Kozak as a wonderful ELA teacher in the 6th grade, and now 7th grade. Her attention to detail in the analysis and grading of the student s writing activities is very thorough, thoughtful and stimulant, giving nice feedback, supportive suggestions and verbal pats in the back . Mr. Levine, the science teacher, 7th grade, also deserves special praise. He is the most enthusiastic teacher ever, has a very interesting webpage and handles the Tri-M musical activities outside of the school.

I love this school! All my teachers are nice and kind people. If any students feel like their teachers are mean to them, it is simply because the teachers care so much about their work.

I love the school, the teachers, the staff, the students - its the parents that are over the top. Fussing about trivial things and throwing their money around! Its distasteful and rude!

When it comes to academics, this school is great. Most of the teachers are very friendly, very intelligent and are overall wonderful people. But it is a bad environment for learning. Everyone is obsessed with how you look all the time, it's ridiculous. I know that a lot of people wish that we have uniforms sometimes because it is just too hard to try to look good every single day.

If it is one think we have to critizise about IMS, it is that the teachers did not seem to care about how our son did with his grades. A bit of pride in ensuring that the students perform at their maximum capability, and a little care that they are doing well, would go a long way. Perhaps a mail every now and then to the parents saying that the student could need extra help in school. IMS teachers simply don t seem to care.

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.
