Phillips ave is a wonderful school led by an amazing principal Mrs Rogers. She goes above and beyond to make sure each student gets a great education in a caring environment! Test scores are misleading given there is a high % of non-english speaking students. My daughter has been at Phillips for preschool, kindergarten and now 1st grade. She is proficient in basic math skills and reading entire books in both english and spanish. I grew up in a very wealthy school district and Phillips is just as good if not better! I couldn't be happier!!

Phillips Ave School has the most amazing dedicated teachers I have ever seen. They truly care for each child. Mrs. Rodgers is an amazing principal and she fights everyday to make sure our kids get everything they need.

My two kids go to this school. Grades k and 3rd. A lot of changes have been happening since mrs Rodgers became the principal. She is extremely dedicated not only to the school, teachers and students, but she wants and brings in parents and families. I can see testing grades are not the best, but I'm happy my children have the chance to see and participate in owning changes!!! Learning that if you want better you can make it better! Great bilingual program and much more enriching things are being added!

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.
