I am a guardian of a child who has attended this school for almost 3 yrs. & it has exceeded my expectations. I have been a parent for nearly 30 yrs. & I am very happy with the atmoshere of respect @ Titusville and the commitment of the principal & teachers.

My two children both attended Titusville. The teachers were excellent and principal made it a community where everyone was welcome. They loved attending this school.

I use to go to Titusville and I have to say it was the best 3 years of my life. The only thing I wished they had more of was having extracurricular activities. I loved my band teacher and my teachers a lot. All the staff was nice to me. The principal was very nice to. That is why I recommend this school.

Our sense of public school after transitioning our child from private school to public school is that it all depends on which teachers your child gets. 2 of our childs teachers were nice and also thorough teachers academically and then in 5th grade our child's teacher was verbally abusive and poor at teaching math. We made a complaint and the principal did talk to the teacher but the teachers behavior remained the same and the principal did nothing else. The principal left mid year for another job and our childs teacher transferred at the end of the year.

A wonderful place to send your children! the staff is pleasant, the children happy and pride is something we can all learn from. This is the kind of school were children are smiling, the teachers do not yell and the kids are well behaved.

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.
