This is a nicely maintained school in a very wealthy suburb. Violence and bullying is unheard of, and frowned upon even by the students. Teachers are very friendly and caring, if not a little too nice and relaxed. Students get both "Flex" and "Advocacy" time (free time) during the day to do the little to no homework that they get. This school goes to show how being in a good neighborhood makes all the difference. Parents really care, and the school respects students. Principal is very nice, a young woman who seems very caring of the students. Since there are basically no behavior problems, she tends to chat with the students casually. Fantastic school...this should be a model school for the rest of America.

Although I only attended this school for the 6th grade, it has still been one of my favorite schools that I attended. Every teacher I had, mr. Pierson, mrs. wolfort, mrs. hamilton , and ms. pogge, were absolutely amazing! especially ms. pogge. I had always had trouble with math, but Ms. Pogge found a way to teach it in a way that I could understand. best school!

With the exception of Mrs. Toohey(8th Grade Math) the teacher at this school are terrible!

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.
