I agree with the other two reviews for children with special needs. The school offers the most minimal support it can for a child who needs help. The faculty is not interested in learning new strategies to help children and only rely on old programs which do not benefit our children. I also found resistance with my child's entire team and especially the Director of Special Education. Although children want playdates with other children, the parents snub other kids not in thier crowd. This district should broaden their horizons and perform research that would help all children succeed, no matter what their disability.

Not very well. They support the minimum they need to support. As a parent, obviously I want the best learning situation for my child. I have met with nothing but resistance with my child's team and the director of Special Educaiton. The school can improve by opening its eyes to a whole world of theories/treatments which would assist children other than behavior modification.

I find the Marion Street School to be a wonderful learning institution. The staff are very engaged with the students and are consistently working to improve the school experience. The community involvement at this school is also stellar - the PTA has a very high participation in the school and parents work alongside teachers and the principal to ensure a strong education experience.

The School Is Nice Overall.Safe And The Children Are Happy.However, They Are Still Living In The 60S!If You Are A Minority Family You Are Either Snubbed Or Ignored Entirely By Parents In Thus Community.Ive Had Children Attend This School And Although Theyve Made Friends During School time.The Parents PurposelY Prevent Their Children From Having Frequent Playdates And Friendships outside Of School.Even The PTa Is Not Welcoming When You Attend Meetings.They Do Not Acknowledge Newcomers Or Outsiders.I Hope For Some Positive Changes For This Entire School District In The Upcoming Years.Who Knows Miracles Do Still Happen Right OrTheir Reputation Can Take A Serious Blow!

The Principal & Teachers are excellent and they do a great job with the kids. The parents are very involved with activities and thats what makes this school run well. But I will say this the School taxes are through the roof and the School board members need to do a better job on cutting out the waste in the budget. I know its in ever school district. But other than that Iam happy to have my 2 children in this school.

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.
