We have three children in the Oakfield system. We have found the current administrators to be much more open, honest, and receptive than the past administrators. While there are always exceptions.... the Teachers are engaged, caring, and well above average. The mathematics department is very progressive and forward thinking. Over all a B+.

The commitment displayed by the teachers and staff to the students and the community is outstanding. Many changes have occured recently but most of us feel that it can only benefit the students and teachers.

The administration is very poor quality right now. With better leadership, the safety, discipline as well as parental involvement would go up.

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.
