my daughter comes home and speaks spanish i am over joyed.

Posted July 7, 2009

Not impressed with the school or what it offers. There is no diversity in this school and some of the educators at the school are not encouraging to the children.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted September 7, 2007

This school is highly regimented. The children are learning dual languages daily, taught in a way that is conversational and natural; not forced and institutionalized. Children are exceeding state requirements on standardized tests and parent involvment at the school is phenomenal. This school has seen continous growth since its inception and will likely continue to see growth in the next five to ten years.

I am satisfied with the school it provides a safe environment, bilingual education and helpful staff.

Posted February 6, 2005

Absolutely one of the best charter schools in Rochester. They have the children in a full day Spanish class, the next day they are in a full day English classroom. My child is Puerto Rican and African American and I want my child to have the chance to learn spanish. EMHCS has helped my child to stay close to her spanish roots. Plus they have added more grades so the school has grades K-6.

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.
