Daniel Street Elementary School is a great school. Most of the teachers are knowledgeable and well received with the expected occasional exceptions.

My son graduated from this school, and up until then, I was quite happy. However, my daughter, who was in Kindergarten was forced to transfer in January, 5 days before the new report card because we moved to another school area right HERE in Lindenhurst. (We moved to the Alleghany area.) Luckily my daughter adjusted immediately and did wonderful on her report card which the teacher had to base on 5 days only. I liked most of the teachers in Daniel street but the principal and staff in the office handled my situation poorly. In the end, I'm glad we're in Alleghany.

Daniel Street can be great when it comes to safety. Parents must be there to meet their child at the door afterschool until third grade, unless they are bussed of course. As all schools teachers depend on the person who is the teacher, because teachers are people. This year my son happens to have a wonderful teacher, though she can be very tough and picky and tough with grades, especially for a young grade level. Almost unfair at times alot of parents say. Last year he had a wonderful teacher. He had one teacher who did not handle discipline well at all, but she was pretty new. So, like I said it depends on the person teaching and your child and yourself, and I just hope every year for the best one for my son. They have art, music and gym, not much computer teaching though, but we have done that at home already anyway since he was a toddler. The PTA, like all PTA's can be cliqueish. It can be hard to get involved when you have younger children since the principal's rule is no siblings. It makes it hard for parents to help out since so many of us are only on our 1st or second in school and still have younger ones at home. Overall Daniel is a terrific school. They have a wonderful language arts and math program. This past year they adapted a new one though and stick mostly strictly by the book, thanks to the state exams. My child still thrives although alot of the math assignments are things I've never even seen myself and parents call each other to figure out how to help the kids w/ homework. The teacher does not send home explanation sheets usually. The new system has a roundabout way of teaching but the children seem to be doing ok, so we will see how it goes. Daniel Street is a clean, safe and close knit school with many wonderful and caring teachers and workers and I hope it stays that way.

Well my child went to this school. She had great teachers and a great principal. Mark and I would take her to school in the morning and she would walk back home. She had great friends that she would hang out with. Sometimes her and her friends had a minor problem at school but, it would end soon. If you go to this school I think you would be making the right choice.

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.
