I think this school must improve with their communication with parents. The entire school year I felt out of the loop with what was going on with my child day to day. If was not made aware of any issues my child was having. There was very slim communication with the teacher. I am extremely disappointed.

This school is by far the best one that the patchogue medford school district offers. The principal is on top of all the surroundings and each child. she cares so deeply for the school and kids. the kindergarten program is superb. Mrs Ruggiero and Ms. Salpietro are amazing at their job and the way they teach these kids is truly a blessing. I am so happy to have my kids as part of this tremendous 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 2012-2013 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. 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.
