My daughter has been bullied and harassed for several years now at Schoharie Central School, not just by other students but my administrators. I have attemted numerous times every year to get help for my child and the district has done nothing to aid us. Instead, they continue to bully my daughter through intimidation by filing false reports with DSS and Family Court/Probation. Parents, students, teachers, staff and community members should come forward and share their own stories and work together to put an end to this outrage.

great school as I have had 1 generations of kids to get through it. The teachers & staff are very patient and caring and the principal is very proactive!

I think Schoharie is a great school! It offers many great programs, the staff is good, and the teachers do their job well! Schoharie is a safe school and small, so you get to know your class well and all the teachers know who you are.

I am not sure how this school is since Mr. Larry Clarke has left. Although while he was principal this school was run amazing. The students are offered so many wonderful programs, this school knows that not all students can do well in certain subjects and they try to help there very best.

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.
