Taxes are to high, teachers are paid to much, the school board is weak and the admin. lacks exp!!!!


Posted December 12, 2011

They should get better school lunches and more choices. Taxes are way to expensive. They should also get more academic programs. Some teachers are not very good.

Academic programs at JCS are very bad. Sometimes the teachers are prejudice against certain students. But, Dee Allard is a great principal. There are not enough people.


Posted May 5, 2010

Teachers care but way too many faculty for # of students and not getting it done. Bloated. Taxes way too high for value.

Academic programs at JCS are very good. However, sometimes the teachers are prejudice against certain students. But, Dee Allard is a great principal. Most JCS teachers are curtious and down to earth.

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.
