I am encourage that my grand daughter reads and writes well, I give this school credit for her skills. I feel this schools need more resources and a new building. The programs I have attended have been great. The staff has been attentive to my grand daughter needs and have resolved problem as WIN/WIN.

My daughter, who is in 4th grade, has a total of 1 hour of homework per week. She has not brought home any graded homework, nor graded quizes/tests. While they do have an elective band that meets 1/2 hour per week, the school offers no on-location extracurricular activities. No sports, no clubs, nothing! The PTA has only a handful of active members/officers. There is no Brownie or Girl Scout troup at this school, because of lack of parental involvement. Art classes meet every other week.

My child has gone here from first grade through 5th, so far. Up until this particular year I have been happy with the school. I feel this year that he has not gotten the attention he should have. No follow through on poor performance. Son has not been turning in homework on a regular basis and the teacher has not bothered to notify me.

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.
