We have 2 children in Glendaal. Our oldest started in 1st grade and will be entering 4th this fall and our youngest will be entering 1st. We have overal had a good experience with Glendaal. The teachers are great, they are really hard working and very responsive to any issues or concerns you may have. I have never felt that any topic I addressed was ignored or 'blown off.' I would hope that a more collaborative effort for curriculum to be more cohesive from one grade to the next. In 1st grade my daughter had to do 3 written and oral reports. I thought at first that this was to big of an expectation of this grade level. But saw how much she got out of it and was very pleased with the end results. However, in 2nd she did none and in 3rd just 1....which to me felt like a step back. I am pleased my 'new' 1st grader has this same teacher and will hopefully have the same projects. Great community, although many of the same parents are in charge of multiple roles (PTA and such) which makes favortism see inevitable and makes new parents feel as if they are intruding...

Three of my children attend Glendaal. We moved from another district where one of our children was having definite academic issues, with the help of some qualified teachers and special programs offered all of our children are now up to grade level and have made improvements above and beyond the school enviroment. I think Glendaal is a great school with some very exordinary teachers!!!!

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.
