I absolutely love this school. My children have attended here and the staff is very nice, respectful, and understanding. My children have behavioral problems and SVCS was able to make adjustments for them. I am currently trying to move back into the district.

Stockbridge Valley Central School is sort of small, but it's better because pretty much everyone knows everyone and our school has nice programs for the kids that I believe work. Not all the teachers have favorites, but they just understand us better than most teachers do. They also have a balanced line between teaching and understanding, if you know what I mean. Stockbridge is reasonable, is really clean, and we are good at maintaining 'peace'. We've gone through superintendents because we are a good school to start out on, and then they leave to teach bigger, harder schools. So don't judge us by a few sour kids' opininion.

Svcs.. i think is an okay school. Compared to many schools around here we have more than many people around here do because our school actually cares about how it's treated and looked at from other people's points of views...

My two oldest children attended SVCS throughout their entire education and graduation. The quality of the teachers and superintendents declined drastically throughout this time. My children were not challeneged academically and 'favorites' were common. (Mostly children of parents who worked there) My youngest child went for his early years, but has since been attending a local school that has met his needs much better. At SVCS, homework didn't make it home, there were no personal notes unless he did something wrong. At his new school, there is daily communication and I feel that his new teacher has a handle on him and knows him personally and teaches to his needs. Stockbridge has declined drastically in the last ten years, especially the math. They can not keep a superintendent. (Three in the last three years)

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.
