Excellent school and hardworking, dedicated teachers who not only have high expectations....they also go out of their way to help their students achieve, despite their abilities. There is always lots, and lots of positive reinforcement and recognition. The curriculums change to meet the NYS standards. I was always amazed at what my kids were learning. My three children went to Barton (from 1997- 2010) and I only have praise for the staff, principal, teachers and school nurse. The PTA is also hardworking and its primary focus is the students. The building is also clean and tidy.

I couldn't agree less with the first posting. I have three children, two of whom are currently attending Barton, and one that graduated last year. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about not only the principal, Ms. Soltner, but the teachers as well. My children have done exceptionally well at Barton and that is due to the extraordinary commitment of the teachers and staff. The go above and beyond the call of duty and make me proud to say that I am a Barton parent.

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, and in grades 4 and 8 in Science. 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.
