Channel View is a school where much of the staff has stayed since it opened in 2004 and for good reason. It's an ideal environment to teach because most of the students are motivated to learn and there are very few behavioral problems. The parents are also supportive when it comes to their children's education. Most of the staff knows every student by name and the principal has created a culture where you feel like you're part of an extended family . Among the teachers there is also a collaborative community where lesson plans, resources and best practices are shared instead of the compeitiveness that exists in most schools. I hope to stay here until retire.

I have been a CVSR student since 6th grade [or technically 8th grade b/c I it was called ALPS then]. Now I'm a senior in the advanced regents program. Since it's a small school, the student-teacher relationships are very strong and teachers are able to help their students with their specific needs. Most of the students know each other, even students in various grades. The art/music teachers are spot extremely talented in their fields, and CVSR offers advantages as far as getting a head start and college for middle and high school students. I gained 3 high school credits the summer I graduated from 8th grade. The only real downside to this school is the lack of freedom/ abundance of over-protection, and if you count it as one, the uniform policy. I know I'll miss this school when I leave in '09.

I've been a student at Channel View since 6th grade and i am now in my senior year. The teachers at the school are great I know pretty much all of them and they know me and can call me by name. The learning environment at channel view is pretty great. There arn't a lot of schools in ny that you can say that about. I cant even remember the last time there was a fight. And there are always people there to help you with any kind of problem you have. CVSR is a great school but I wish we got to do more and had a little more freedom. I do believe they prepare us for college in the academic department but not so much in the social department. (trips, outside learning [ALPS!] etc)

This is my son's first year at CVSR and it was a great experience. In order to get the best out of your childs school, parents must participate. The Parent Coordinator was very helpful and always available when I needed information. My son's teachers have all been excellent. I am able to speak to my childs teacher during evening hours if I needed to. I have their email addresses and one was kind enough to give me her cell phone number if I have any concerns. All schools have a teacher or two that we aren't to pleased with, but as long as you are an active parent and show that your child is not alone in this world, trust me you will get the quality your child deserves. New parents please get involved in the monthly PTA meetings and be aware of what's going on at CVSR.

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.

The NYC Department of Education asked parents, teachers and students about their school's learning environment. Results provide insight into school climate, such as whether the school is academically rigorous, safe, communicative and collaborative. Learn more

The information captured by the survey is designed to support a dialogue among all members of the school community about how to make the school a better place to learn. An overall category score is calculated for each respondent group (parents, teachers, or students) by averaging the scores of the questions within that survey category.

Category scores for each of the respondent groups are then combined to form overall category scores. Alongside the results for each school are the aggregated results across all NYC public schools, which are provided as a basis for comparisons.
