ALL THE EGGS IN ONE BASKET On monday november 4th at 7:00 am my 5 year old child and I waited in the cold for the bus that comes to pick him up in front of this school along with our puppy. And as I waited my son began to complain that he was cold and his fingers were hurting. So as any mother would do ...I thought maybe it would be okay to wait in the school for some warmth and shelter. well soon enough someone came and saw us in distress and allowed us in. not thinking that it would be a cause for conflict. soon after I was let in the principal and some other lady came in. the lady with the short hair was rude and began to asking me what am i doing here and after I explained to her she followed by saying "well thats why you come on time and you cannot be here. and I began to feel talked down to instead of welcomed. I went in the office and spoke to them politely and said I feel like I was not welcomed and although Im not supposed to be in the school my child does wait for the bus at your school.I didnt see the fault in me or someone that work here providing my son with warmth instead of waiting out thee for a few minutes. I was unwelcomed by the principal and her co host.

When we moved to Monticello (NY) from NYC mid-year, I was amazed at how attentive and effective the staff was in making our transition painless. I got to meet the teacher that day and felt so comfortable with her and the rest of the school staff. The school is like a neighborhood, everyone knows everyone from the principal to the cleaning crew. The classrooms are large enough for computers, play areas and desks. The class size is small which gives each student the attention they need. You need to get involved in the school activities because it benefits your child and makes everyone know you, as the parent, too. I always said 'if I moved back to NYC, my son would have a 2 hour bus ride' (back up here) - the school is great.

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.
