Sharon Springs Central School is a great place for kids to attend. The teachers are very caring and involved in the kids. Parents are involved in education and extra curricular activities. Community involvement is a big bonus.

Sharon Springs Central School is an excellent school. The teachers always push the students to reach there max potential and there are many extracurricular activities that help students expand their max potential. The basketball teams has gone to sectionals many times and the soccer and baseball and softball teams have greatly improved over the years. For a small school they have a lot to offer, and are always looking to expand on those opportunities.


Posted February 14, 2011

I found the teachers overall are very supportive of the children and concerned with their educational development. They could use some more programs, educational and otherwise to further benefit the kids, but I can definitely recommend the school.

The school does not inform the parents of a child possibly failing until the end of the 3rd quarter. Not very informative.

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.
