This school has the best graduation rate in the North Country. Fabulous community of faculty and staff. They would do anything for the students!

This school is the best school i've been to. Ok, i disagree from the review posted on October 17, 2009. Yes some teachers are on the mean side, and the days are long, but the homework is fine, and I love this place. They teach you work way beyond your age (in math anyway) but that helps you learn, and it creates a challenge. The teachers are excellent as well!


Posted November 25, 2009

This is an amazing school with seemingly endless oppritunities. Most of the 7-12 students are three or four sport athletes, I myself play soccer, cross country skiing, and golf. The area is unbelievable. Basically no crime in an extremely well knit community. I hope someday I'm lucky enough to raise my kids here.

Too much homework! Mean Teachers as well! School days 7 hours, too long! But you learn a lot, some teachers are nice, all the non-teacher staff friendly.

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.
