My wife and I are both graduates of this school. Our two younger children are, or will be graduates of Mohawk. We are satisfied with the overall quality of the educational foundation. Sound Mathematics: Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, and introductory Calculus. Sound English, Literature, and Writing skills are taught, indeed, Freshmen read Homer's, Iliad. Science, Language and History/Social Studies are satisfactorily covered. The school system suffers the same distractors as most in contemporary society: student over-exposure to Hi Tech gadgets-potential distractors from real thinking and learning. This is not a deficiency of the school system, but is a hazard to developing clear thinking and writing skills. Mohawk is a small school which provides a sound basis for any student seeking a competitive Collegiate preparation. Mike deMayo, Mohawk, 1975, US Military Academy, 1979.

Horrid! I don't understand why they don't do something about there computer department do they care, or they must not just understand how important computers are going to be. Rome Labs is 30 minutes away, Rome Labs is on the verge of being the Silicone Valley of the NE. Get with it!

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.
