After spending 7 years at a parochial school where the tuition was growing but, the education was shrinking I decided to enroll my child at Roanoke. I could not be happier. My child has never been challenged more or supported more. The teaching staff is marvelous. The ELA curriculum is outstanding, inventive and, engaging. My child is thriving and, can't wait to go back next September.

The teachers genuinely care about the students! The small school with a big heart. I have two children that attend at this time and I could not be any happier with the education they have received so far.

I have a son in Roanoke right now, and its an okay school. Its not a great school, but it serves its purpose I guess. My son spent alot of time getting bullied this year, but as crazy as it sounds, he is now friends with that kid! He didn't get enough help with his reading in the school. Seems as much as he isn't a great reader, there are other kids far worse then him, therefore he had to forego reading help.

I have had children in Roanoke Avenue School since 2005 and I cannot complain about the education they have received. The staff and teachers genuinely care about the children and all of my children are academically above average.

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. 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.
