Southampton Elementary is top of the line. The teachers and administration are professional, dedicated, and involved. I have two sons who attend the school, both have had wonderful experiences. When they go to the middle school and high school, I hope they have just as great an experience.

Unfortunately this school falls very short of it's potential. The individual cost of educating children here is far higher than most schools yet because of tenyeared teachers who are absolutley inadequate and the various clicks, many children fall through the cracks. My son was completel;y turned off from school because of his experiences here and now attends Moriches Elementary School where his enthusiasm for learning and participating has returned in full force. Beware for those parents who advocate for their children. This is seemingly frowned upon by the administration.

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 2012-2013 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. 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.
