It's hard not to gush about Rosendale, as civilized and accomplished an elementary school as you'll find in a public system. The special ed services are fantastic, the faculty a lovely mix of highly experienced with young and energetic, the principal on a first-name basis with every kid. The demographics are dominated by smart parents, as it were, but the make-up is also surprisingly diverse, thanks in part to the proximity of GE Labs and to a growing extent Global Foundries, which are attracting families from around the country and world. I have two very different children, one extremely bright and the other needing a ton of support just to get through the day, and we feel very confident both are getting the education they need. The school does a good job at balancing core classroom instruction with "specials"; the facilities are good, especially the library and computer lab, although the smaller gym and somewhat tired cafeteria need updates. One minor concern: like many public schools, it's hard to get involved in the "regular" school day, although an active PTO oversees a large number of family and school-building events, including the locally famous "Hogwarts Night".

My kids did well here. Rosendale has excellent programs to help any child from falling behind. We love the Niskayuna 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 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.
