we have a contsant "road block" with this school. They say one thing, do another, never put anything in writing. They belittle children and families. For our child who is being "pushed along" , does poorly and state tests, has been treated for adhd for several years....they wont clearly tell us how they help our child. They are vague, dont like questions or parents advocating for their child. Non stop blocking. Instead of working together to solve problems, they put up walls, and segregate the child from home, family, community and school as being as a working relationship. No wonder our education system is a mess.

We just removed our very well behaved daughter from this school mid year and had to put her in a private school due to a very bad inexperienced teacher and lack of Principal leadership and teacher indoctrinating our kids with Principals approval. Principal sticks up for bad teachers and lets things get out of hand. District was involved. Children being taught in this particular classroom with their backs to the whiteboard and teacher. Our child (when in 1st grade) was also lost on a school bus 2 years ago from 3:30 to 5:10 and Principal was mad we went to the District looking for her because they put her on the wrong bus and did not know where she was. Too much to mention here but so glad because this has turned out to be a Blessing for our family. There has been NO transition but amazing Joy with teachers that are not tenured, underpaid, Christian values, Academics are Incredible. Better than we imagined! (ex: EE multiplication to 3's-new school doing 5 digit division and assignents written in cursive..) teachers give your child one on one and small classes (14 kids with 2nd and 3rd combined) parental involvement is mandatory and best of all there are NO Bad teachers/Principals..

The school is great. The parents are involved, the building is in good shape, most of the teachers are terrific, and the kids really like being there. My only complaint is that the administration doesnt seem to do much about the teachers that arent as good as the others. This is where parents need to get involved more.

My son has been attending Elmcrest for the last 6 years, he is about to enter his last year there, and my daughter will start her first. I have been very happy with the education he has recieved there, he has had some wonderful teachers!

My son as attended Elmcrest for the last 3 years I have another one that will be starting and I am thrilled with the level of committment from the teachers. They truly care about the students I feel that he is getting a first rate education.

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. 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.
