Absolutely terrible. Every year for the past 5 years I have had to have a phone call with the principal about one of my children getting bullied. I really don't think he takes it seriously. The "investigations" math program is useless. It was a proven failure across the country before the implemented it. It has lived up to its reputation. The art teacher destroyed my son's love of art. My children loved learning and exploring new things and this school and its poor excuse for leadership has taken that from them. I honestly believe that my children would have been far better off had they attended no school at all than the Paul Road School.

I have had three children attend Paul Road School. The academic programs are challenging and prepare students for middle school and high school. The teachers are dedicated professionals. Paul Road has an excellent music program which includes Chorus, Band and a newly formed Jazz Band. Intramurals for both boys and girls are offered bi-weekly. There are several opportunities for students to do community service through Service Club activities. The level of parent involvement is high. The paul Road School Family Association sponsors many family activities including a Pizza Supper and School Fair. In addition to the PRSFA activities, families can participate in Nature Center activities such as the mulching party in the Fall or Nature Walks in the Spring. Paul Road is an excellent school offering an excellent education.

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.
