The teachers are wonderful and they care about you.They treat you with respect and like a young adult.I couldn't ask for anything better.


Posted November 1, 2009

I had 3 kids come through this school, I have been through the time of the re-districting and new principal , I do have to say the teachers are very good here, of course some do not belong just like all schools have a few teachers who should not be teaching. I think the principal is excellent,as for the administration , the women in the office are not very happy or friendly , I have been involved with this school for 10 years now and still have a child in the school, education wise very good, I do however think they need to lighten up on the kids in the lunch room and hallways as far as talking and socializing on free time it is sad the schools took away the fun of being in school.

Had two kids go to this school - 4 years apart. Not happy with administration, the women in the office are unfriendly and could care less if they make you wait. Can't wait to be done with this school!

Very good advisors, very concerned and active principal, but a large and somewhat institutional school. Very regimented, no time for interaction between classes, which was a problem for my child coming from a small private 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 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.
