Teachers are generally very committed, engaging, effective and accessible, with a few disappointing exceptions. My child was bullied relentlessly and the school leadership was impotent in halting the hostile behavior, so the overall experience was negative. Great school for kids who are affluent, intelligent, athletically-gifted and confident. All others may do well in a more responsive environment.

'I am actually a student at Pittsford Middle School and I love it here. It's a safe, fun environment. I'm in 7th grade and my brother and sister have already gone through this school. We all had great teachers that took their time with everyone and made everything fair. I just love it here.'

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.
