We love this school! The principal, Mrs. Segal is wonderful. The teachers are all very involved and caring. I have a 5th grader there and she receives special education. This was an emotional time for us. Her teachers worked with us every step of the way. I would recommend this school 10x over.

The Principal and staff at this school are wonderful and really care about the kids. I am happy my daughter has the chance to experience this school. There is always some wonderful activity being held and their reading program for the kids is excellent. I cannot say enough good things about this school.

I am a parent of two boys who have gone to the school. The principal is wonderfully dedicated and has very high standards. She is goal oriented and not afraid to try new things when it comes to the childrens academics and overall achievement. The school does need some updating physically and the gym programs could be more extensive and educational but all in all a great school for a small district.

Mrs.Cardosa, the principal is an amazing woman who amazes me with her abilities. She is kind, patient, and remembers not only every students but their parents as well. She is extremely involved with every aspect of the kids education and visits each class as often as possible and addresses any issues immediately.

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.
