My son attends Lynn wood elementary school and I would not have asked for more. It is a wonderful learning environment and a "really fun school" according to him. He loves the classes, teachers and special activities. When my husband and I were looking for a good public school we had a struggle until we found Lynn wood.

Lynnwood is a wonderful school. The teachers are attentive to the kids and there are teacher's aides to help. The new principal is involved and thoughtful

My daughter went to Lynnwood for 6 years and my son is currently in fourth grade. The programs offered to the students are great. The music program is a great feeder to middle school. Advanced and special needs kids are identified and addressed with programs to keep thier interest. The organizational skills stressed in Lynnwood successdfully carried over ito middle school. The staff is awsome and consistent. I have not witnessed andI don't agree the staff turnover comment from another reviewer. My kids totally thrived at Lynnwood.

The teachers at this school are very supportive of the students. They go out of the way for the children even those with special needs. The administration in this building is weak. The principal is not a strong leader. There also seems to be a high staff turnover in this building.

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.
