I graduated in 2002 from Kendall. I love this school. Kendall overall is completely centered around the school with sports and clubs. Everyone was a part of something. I always felt the teachers I had really cared about my progress. If anyone didn't understand something they took the time to make sure it was understood before continuing on, something I have found quite different in college. While I have since moved on from NY, I cannot see my future children going to any other school but Kendall. I've moved around the country a lot in the past 8 years, and it has opened my eyes to many things. I have become so much more appreciative of the Kendall school system and I can only hope Kendall's legacy continues for decades to come.

Excellent school system! Students can be involved as much as they want with different clubs, sports, and activities. Education comes first and having a small community helps the students feel that they are more than a number. A+ for this school.

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.
