It is evident that this school has a team of dedicated teachers and faculty that work diligently everyday to ensure the best education for their students. I have worked in several other school districts in NYS, and this school, has 100% teacher commitment. Although many of the teachers have families and children of their own, they care for their students needs and well being and take into account the hardships that many of them face OUTSIDE of the classroom. I am proud to be part of this team.

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.
