This school is terrible! The staff don't have a clue, administration is a joke. The kids are like little gangsters in the making and nothing gets done to fix the problem kids! Stay away!

My son was transferred to this school from another Elem. in district and the faculty and staff were amazing! The Asst. Principal, Mr. Baaden, is extremely understanding and by far one of the best principals I've ever had the pleasure of working with. My son's academic/emotional success was the most important factor to everyone who worked with him and allowed him to excel in a school year which began as a challenge and ended with ease. The CSE meetings were difficult this year, a lot of hard work to get my son the services he needs, and his disability is stil not indicated on his IEP properly, but thanks to the help of the speech and resource room teachers, he will be promoted to the next grade and receive the additional services he requires as well.

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.
