If you are not from the area and enroll your child here they will not fit in. Poor disciplinary measures in place if any. Support system is really only needed until 6th grade. High level of bias and discriminatory teachers, against students who are different than "normal" Delaware county students. School board doesn't hold certain teachers to a standard and let them do pretty much whatever they please.

I find south kortright to be a community all itself, the teachers, the guidance office, and parents welcome each other. The support for the students with academics and sports are amazing. I am to have all four of my children attend this school. Denise

It was a great place to attend and have my sons attend.

South Kortright is an excellent school to attend. I attended South Kortright from K-12. It's a great community based school with teachers that truly care about their students. Any one that asks for help will receive it. South Kortright has an excellent sports program considering their size and location. I would encourage anyone thinking about moving into the school district to do so. I am beginning my doctorate in physical therapy and South Kortright has prepared me well for this journey.

School does not encourage or challenge the students. There is partiality to certain students. Those students needing an IEP, are not encouraged or challenged and are not provided the services needed to help them become independent. The reading and writing program are extremely poor, with a substandard teacher teaching the middle school years.

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.
