All four of my children have either graduated from here or are attending right now. Excellent school. Teachers are caring, principal is great.

I went to elementary school here, and it was the greatest place. The music program is phenomenal-I owe all my musical success to Mr. Bruce Dedrick. The teachers were amazing and always willing to stay for extra help. The Odyssey Program was a great way to challenge students.

I have 2 kids in this school and find it strange that someone would say that teachers have come close to running over kids. I have never had this problem. My kids are in the 4th and 6th grade and started in K. My kids have had a great learning experience. The staff is easy to talk to if any problem arises. Great music program and any extra help is always there to help the kids.

I enjoy the school and everything it has to offer. My daughter's first grade teacher Mrs. Gilligan is fantastic. She pushes the kids to challenge them selves, and be the best that they can be.- pleased parent

This school is fantastic. My son loves it. The principal, Ms. Merenghi, goes out of her way to provide a welcoming and friendly environment. It provides all the benefits of a public school with the feeling of warmth that you would get at a private school. The best school around!

My son will be joining the CSC program in Sept. He attended GCP for the last year. He had lots of questions regarding this school. The CSC Coordinator (Maria) was very helpful, friendly and patient. My son wanted to visit the school so he could be more comfortable. The staff, Principal and Maria was very helpful, informative and patient with him. He had lots of questions and gave a few suggestions also. He seems to be more comfortable now. We are hoping for a wonderful, happy and successful school year in September.

The principal is terrible with kids. Some teachers are great others are all right. The safety is not great. I've almost been hit by teachers' cars plenty of times. So have many other kids. Overall maybe a 2 or 3(maybe)if not worse.

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.
