The Wheatley School School is an exceptional school and very rich. i'm happy to send my child to a school filled with rich people and a lot of people who live in the inc. Village of Old Westbury, which for many is just a dream. Wheatley school budget passes every year because families have money and are rich people. I wish Old Westbury could have they're own school district with just rich people because wheatley does serve East Williston parts of Roslyn Heights, Albertson, Old Westbury, East Hills, and Mineola.

As a parent of the Wheatley School District, I can proudly say that we made the best choice to move into this school district! Both my children are honor students [one away at a prestigious college] and I can only praise the all 3 schools!

Wheatley is a great High School many times it have been label a private school due to their high standards. As a student we are given great opportunities to succeed and it is up to the individual to promote himself. The teachers also are always willing to work with you to increase your school grades. We are given many opportunities to be successful. Since it is a small school everyone knows each other like a family.

The Wheatley School may not be a private preparatory school, but with everything the school offers, it might as well be. The teachers are amazing, the courses are demanding, and the student body is incredibly mature for the ages the kids are at.

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 2012-2013 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in 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.
