Im very pleased with the teachers at this school they help my boys alot
—Submitted by a parent


Posted October 5, 2005

My children are at 2 different schools here in Rochester. The oldest is at 35, and it's the best he's ever been in. Teachers are helpful, parents are very involved, and he has been included in both a peer mentoring and a tutoring program. Not only do they assist those who need the assistance, they also take the time and effort to challenge those who are advanced - something that is difficult to find in a city school.

In our few years at school 35 we have been very pleased with the school in general. Specifically, teacher-parent communication seems to be present at a greater extent than most schools.

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.
