I love this school. We recently moved to Lindenhurst from Brooklyn & it's a totally different world. I'm 100% satisfied with Lindenhurst neighborhood, schools & people in general. So nice to hear English at all times & not other languages. My daughter is in 1st grade & i love her teacher. My daughter is very happy & eager to learn. I hope the rest of the school year is as good as the beginning of it was. Thanks Alleghany for making us feel welcome & right at home.

My daughter had to transfer mid yr during Kindergarten. I was nervous for her but the principal and the teacher made the transition such a smooth one with their warm welcome to the new school. It didn't take long for my daughter to fit in. She quickly caught up to speed and thanks to her experience, now she loves school.

What I like about Alleghany is that the student receives individual attention and the teachers as well as the Principal have an open door policy. Staff is friendly. My son is a student there.

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.
