Our daughter started kindergarten this fall at Canal View. We are very pleased with everything. The principal is excellent and so is our daughter's teacher. They communicate with us regularly and whenever I have a question there is a quick response. They offer clubs in the morning that our daughter has enjoyed participating in. We are very pleased with this school and have no complaints.

Great teachers and community atmosphere. Outstanding facilities on a college like campus. Within the village so students often walk and ride their bikes. Challenging and caring to students. My kids really enjoy going to this school.

My son came in this school in November of 07 as a new student with some behavioral issues and this school has made him a new person, got him to fit in, gave him assistance where it was needed and challenged him academically to his fullest. This school is challenging to the kids minds, hands on with learning, teaches and encourages the kids own developement rates. They offer the most trained teachers and staff. But I have to say the most pleased with me is the counselors and teachers as they take the time to really KNOW the students and what they need most to do their best!

I believe the quality of academic programs is fine. But I would like to point out something that is much more important in my son's case. He came to the school in the middle of the year and was having difficulty fitting in and finding his place. I notified the school with my concerns and they worked diligently and professionally in an effort to help my son adjust to his new school. The teachers and the school counsellor worked with my son to get him involved in activities that would help him make friends. They were responsive and creative in their efforts and what was a problem has become a success.

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.
