This is a small Middle School in a fairly large district. The school houses 6th grade through 8th grade. 7th and 8th grade students may take advanced classes in Math and Science. The arts and science classes are wonderful and students are offered early morning science research classes or studio art classes on a high school level. Overall a great school!

A great school. Challenging academically while maintaining the middle school model. A kind, caring and compassionate group of professionals oversee the educational programs at North.

This school is a great place, but very hard on the children. They work them hard and give too many test. Even homework on the weekends. There is no time for a family time anymore.

I love North Middle School. It is the best middle school. They help the students and may even stay after school with them if they extra help than other students. Go Lynbrook Owls!

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.
