I find this school to be one of the best around. As an elementary teacher who has worked in various settings came to see that this school offered my daughter the best opportunities to be successful as a student. The teachers she has had with this district has challenged her on all levels but was caring enough to help her when she had some struggles. In my mind as a teacher AND a parent this school and district is one of the best in the state even though this site has only given it a 6 out of 10.

The leadership has improved and the atmosphere is benefiting. This school focuses on academics but remembers that the children learning here are still "kids". Learning is fun and Pine Tree tries to honor that with excellent teachers and welcome parent involvement.

This elementary school is an excellent school. It is one of many elementary schools that is part of the Monroe Woodbury School District. In my opinion, this school is the best out of the elementary schools in the disctrict. There is an excellent teaching staff, many that have been there for 15+ years, that have great experience with all types of children. I went to this school, I have friends and family that teach at this school, and I know parents with students in this school. All are truly satisfied with the level of education provided.

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.
