The teachers are young and inexperienced and have poor behavior management plans. I am very disappointed!
—Submitted by a parent


Posted September 6, 2005

One of my daughtera is in the 6th grade. She has 30 students in her class, many of whom are problem students. She does well despite the school. My other daughter is in the 4th grade and very bright - straight A student. She couldn't divide 9 by 3 after her 3rd grade year. I pulled her out and put her in private school. I am thinking of moving to a better district, or at least one with lower taxes!

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.
