This could be and at one time was a wonderful school. The teachers are very good but their hands are tied by over regulation &demands dictated by the new common core curriculum. The principle has turned a blind eye to the individual needs of each child in favor of a "collective" mentality. My child has been struggling with the curriculum and her grades and declining enthusiasm for school has been ignored and pushed aside. The principal tried to tell us that testing wasn't needed and that our child would be fine. Meanwhile by NYS standards testing was required because of the IEP. I found that this reflected poorly on the principal, which was the driving motivator. We have multiple kids in this district and it has been an uphill battle ever since core curriculum was pushed onto our kids. This school district is trying to compete on the scale of cold spring harbor or three village. In one year they made the executive decision to accelerate all children to advanced honors level. So for the kids that are at that level you will be fine as long as you steer clear of the class warfare and the drug problem in the high school. But for the other 90 percent be prepared to pay for tutors.

You must be joking or really dont know this principal. She is exceptional. In all areas, she doesnt lack in any area. If anything is to say negative, itsusually from someone that doesnt agree with her. She stands by her teachers and the district. She will also see that all students get a fair chance here. Very dedicated as you can see by what she does there. Along with the great teachers you should be proud to have your child attend this school.

South Street has offered our child a wonderful elementary school experience. The teachers are approachable and are very connected with each student.The principal applies a strong focus on the importance of reading and writing at all grade levels.

The teachers are exceptional, however, the principal needs to learn more people skills. In addition, the district needs to look into a gifted and talented program to help motivate the students that are displaying a bit more academic zest. Otherwise this is a great school.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
