This is perhaps one of the greatest schools in NY State. My daughter loves it here. The after school activities are great The teachers are engaging and concern about the wellbeing of the students. It s really worth my tax dollars. We will miss this school. Yes, We!!

this school makes you feel miserable and what makes it worse is the thirsty thursday. we have to run twice for a total of 60 laps. doesnt sound bad but it is. no matter how athletic you are your still dying when your running it. its not fun at all. and it ruins the fun everyone used to have in gym. now no one likes gym and people are skipping and calling in 'sick' on thursdays. i really hope we dont do it anymore. its a total waste of time because people are not always taking it. if the director of physical education is reading this please can you take it out of all the schools?

The adminstration at this school is welcoming and concerned with what is best for the child. I find the principal extrememly approachable. The teachers, for th most part, are well trained, communicative and effective. Parents are welcome into the school. Plenty of extra currcicular clubs, sports and other activities. I love this school!!!

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.
