Our school is committed to creating community and teaching kids to be kind, productive individuals. We have caring and dedicated teachers and a wonderful principal!

I have been an LBE parent for the past 8 years and have only great things to say about the school. Both of my children received special services and have excelled beyond our expectations. The teaching staff are very dedicated professionals. Every adult in the building knows each student by name and creates a great learning environment. I can not say there is any one teacher who is better than another because they all are great!...

Excellent school, from the principal to the school nurse, the custodial staff, office staff, and definately the teachers are all wonderful. I've had 4 children attend LBE, with 3 still attending and I have nothing but good things to say about it.

LBE is in my mind a great school. Most of its teachers are great. My children entered LBE with disabilities and thrived. One teacher in piticular will always remain in my heart and that is Mr. Radford. When my son entered his class as a fifth grader he could not even look at anyone and spoke little. When my son left his class and moved on, he did those things and many more. My son who was diagnosed with Aspergers (PDD NOS) when he was five was now smiling and loved school for the first time in his life. Mr. Radford took on a parental role as well as being his teacher. So to Mr. Radford and the great staff at LBE, I love and owe you so much. What a wonderful group of people!

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.
