The teachers in this school are very caring and on top of things! I have a special needs child and I can say they have tried there best to make sure Thomas gets everything he needs as far as services and care. They are sweet and keep in contact with you to let you know how your child is doing. If I have a question someone gets back to me promptly too.My son needs a lot of encouragment and prompting and they have found a system of positive rienforcements to help him thrive and look forward to learning. I must say I was a little worried in the beginning of the school year with my sons placement of Inclusion classroom, but the teachers worked with him and really helped him acclimate to the different classroom setting. The new principal is wonderful too! I noticed how involved he is in all of activities and even just the little things going on in the school, always greets you and makes time to talk to you about whats going on and is very friendly. I believe communication between the teacher/s and parents really help you to really be a part of your childs education and this school has that. Thank you to everyone over at stagecoach, keep up the good work :)

What a great elementary school! My child is having a wonderful experience both academically and socially. My daughter has a very personable teacher who recognizes her potential. It is only the beginning of the school year but I would venture to say it is setting a precedent for the remaining school year! What a gem in the heart of Selden!

We moved to Selden last year and this school has been wonderful for our daughter. Her teacher takes a lot of time to work with her and is always very responsive to our requests and questions.

Stagecoach is a wonderful school for children. While the number of parents involved is fairly low, those involved in the PTA give it their all to provide a lot of 'extras' for the children. I am thrilled with the district's art program....it's amazing. There is a good amount of extracurricular activities considering it is an elementary school. I am not particularly thrilled with the academics of the district as a whole. I think the expectations are set too low. There is no gifted program and intelligent children may be bored. Much of the academics is dependent on the individual teacher and unfortunately, the quality there is inconsistent. I can't speak to the principal since he is brand new. Security is horrible and needs to be addressed.

my son has been going to stagecoach for 4 years now in the special ed classes and this is the first school or school district that has worked for his need the best and mr johnson is one of the greatest principles he knows how to talk to the parents and get matters done.

Mr. Johnson is excellent, but needs to be stricter with children who are bullying others. Some of the lunch aids are very mean to the children & have pushed them at times. The school needs more extracurricular activities and field trips. It's a shame the children are writing for the school paper any longer, there are no more clubs and hardly any trips. Homework should be given at least 3 or 4 nights a week and spelling tests should be given once a week. The school yard needs more garbage pails in the back and on the field.

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.
