I have 3 children that attend E-K school grades 1st, 2nd, 5th I believe E-K is the best! One of my children has learning disabilities and emotional problems. The administration provides all support a child with special needs requires including 6-months of tutoring at home 6hrs. weekly, parental support, counseling services. My 5th-grader took 4th-5th state exams and was taught the skills to perform well on them. How many schools in county offer many quality enrichment classes and clubs such as: Tales for tots, musical instrument instruction (for free), swimming, or clubs like Homework Excellence, after-school homework, Art, Journal, Guitar (bussed home after), summer programs: school, science, recreation (kids eat two free meals daily) family swim, family night, soccer pre-k-8th, 3rd-6th basketball? much more we are lucky!

As my Daughters first day of Pre-k at edwards-knoxs rounds the corner. I'm more leary of what is to come. So far I have not been very impressed with what I have heard, read, or experianced first hand about the school. The last 4 years have shown to be very poor acedemically for the school. With its 4th grade english and Math assessment test averaging in the low 50's. I'm actually looking into moving to a much better school district, such as Norwood-Norfolk or Potsdam. Unless I can see a drastic improvement in grades before finding another house I will be moving. There is no excuse for low 50's to be the 'NORM' for children at this school. Maybe lack of concern by staff and lack of involvement from parents is what is causing this obviously ignored problem to continue. Unfortunatly I would not recommend moving into this school district.

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.
