I was a bit disppointed with this school. If your child is not an "A" student the child does not get the proper attention and encouragement by the teachers. Graduation should be called "awards night." If your child does not receive an award they really don't participate much at graduation. Graduation is a celebration for the whole class but they make it out to award the same children over and over again . Their reading program needs approvement too.

It's a great Elementary School producing top-notch students for our one High School. The teachers and parents participate with and keep the students' interest in learning as well as in Community and Environmental issues.

Mr. Cohen is the new principal and he is great. He is on top of everything! I hope that he stays and continues to whip the school into shape! The teacher quality could improve. They do not challenge the students ability enough

My children have thrived here at Tremont. Amazing teachers and a definite warm community environment. Character and leadership are emphasized as well as community responsibility. My children have such a sense of pride in their school. Their developing minds have been nurtured and their individual personalities have been encouraged. As a parent and community member, I am very pleased.

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.
