The principals and teachers give all of the students one on one attention. In fact, the students feel as though they are at home in a family atmosphere. My daughter was always happy to go to school to learn and be with her friends

I love this school. My two girls went to Terryville in 2nd grade and will be back this September to start 4th grade. I am very happy for them. They loved the school. I believe it is the Principal who directs this school in such a positive way. She is awesome.

The Principal and the PTA are what make this school a success. Mrs. Victor, the principal leads the kids to excellence at every turn. They have an amazing group of teachers. I was a former teachers aid and actually are looking to go back to where I belong. Love that school...

Posted June 25, 2006

I was a student at Terryville, and was very pleased with what a student I became. I was challenged with tasks that I would never try. The teachers are concerned and will bring you very high academically. The clubs are educational and fun, and a great way to meet new people. Parent involvement is without a doubt wonderful! Great school- take it from an old student!

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.
