I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Wenonah! I have two kids that attend this school, one is in First and the other is in Fifth. This is a wonderful school with the BEST teachers and staff! My Fifth grader has loved every teacher she has ever had and truly enjoys going to school everyday! Now my First grader is following in his big sister's footsteps! My daughter said to me the other day, how much she is going to miss Wenonah and the teachers and how she wished she could stay just one more year! For me, It doesn't get any better than that!

This school is excellent! The teachers are great, my daughter has been at wenonah 2 yrs now and I feel she could not be at a better school. My daughter is in Special Education and her teacher along with her classroom staff have been of great help with her progress. I love this school!

I've only experienced excellent teachers, in the 5 years my son attended. The school and principal's policy of being decent to each other is constantly reinforced and monitored. I've been extremely happy with this school.

Both my kids go to Wenonah. One is in 5th grade now and the other is in 2nd grade. I have to say that the school is great. The teachers and the rest of the community that put their time into the school are great. They do alot for our children and go above and beyond to make learning a good experience.

My son loves kindergarten at Wenonah. The teacher, assistant, even the other teachers and nurse are great. Great communication between school and family. We are planning to move and decided to stay nearby so that all our kids will go to this school

very disapponted with trying to get special services when it is needed. they do not want to pay for this for the children. they look very excuses not to classify your children with disablity's and blame the parent, so there monies are not spent. this is the fact and how it is here.

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.
