They faculty have their own agenda, they treat the kids like the old saying "Kids should been seen not heard", Majority of the aids are trailer park trash and are always yelling at the kids. I am a parent that happens to have a child in the school.

I'm so happy to have my children attend New York Mills school! The teachersand all the staff are very personable and caring. They really make my children feel comfortable and safe and they enjoy going to school each day. There are plenty of activities planned for the kids thanks to great parent involvement and more field trips than I can remember having as a kid. There disciplinary system is effective for my children, they offer plenty of praise and reward the good behaviour therefore making it a better choice for them to behave. The small class sizes allow children to get the attention they need. Awesome school:)

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.
