I think Schuylerville does a great job at 'talking big' about what they are going to do, and then not do it. If your child is a special ed student, good luck. I can't wait until my children get out of this school.

This was my son's first year. For a now teenager going through other changes, this change went very smoothly.

I would highly reccommend Schuylerville. All aspects of our childrens education have exceeded expectations. We transfered our children from a private school to Schuylerville based upon it's reputation. It was the best educational move that we have ever made.

My children have attended Schuylerville schools since they started school. We just moved to Texas and they started 10th and 12th grade respectively. Schuylerville gave them the tools necessary to make this change and feel confident that they can compete in school.

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.
