Wonderful school, very involved and attentive staff. They do a great job of managing the transition from elementary school to middle school as well as preparing the students for high school

Well, among the graduates trumpeting their approval for this school, one thing is consistent: atrocious spelling. *shudder*


Posted August 1, 2009

i have been to about five diffrent schools all over the U.S this by far is the best school at least i have ever been to and i think it will be one of the best. the teachers are great and help you with anything you want until you know step by step. I've had mid 90's in most of my classes in all three years and its all because of the teachers!!

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.
