This is a great public school. Always greeted with smiles and staff is very quick to handle any issues that may arise.

Petrides is a great school overall. The small environment allows for individual attention as needed. Most teachers are attentive and are willing to discuss student progress with the parent.

This school is amazing, they have great opportunities for kids. I've seen a great improvement with children who have attended this school.

It's a shame that this school is doing so poorly as far as education and discipline. .. There are a lot of teachers that display favoritism and it is unfair. Also this school does not challenge students or prepare them for college. I have two students attending Petrides and I am currently in works of having them transfered out. Elementary school is not that bad. Middle school is horrible students do nothing in class other than make videos and play games while teachers sit back and allow this to happen. Bullying is increasingly viewed as an important contributor to youth violence. Well here at the M. J. Petrides teachers bully students as well as students bully each other . This school is clearly not the best keep secret and not family oriented. The administration sweeps it all under the rug. Prinipal, Assistant Principal and most Educators are horrible. Students with IEP's the assistance is horrible. Don't believe the hype!!

i love this school. my children feel like part of a family. The mix of students ranging from high school to kindergarten makes this school a family. When we have school events you can really see how we shine!!

The consistency of the educational environment, educators themselves, support staff and administration as well as children knowing their classmates and their families for 13 years help in maintaining children's emotional security. This truly allowing them the freedom to grow intellectually.

The Michael J. Petrides school is a K-12 school. It is one big family. By the time you are in 12 grade you have gotten to know your parents, staff and children like they were your own family. Teachers are great as well as Administration.

Great school, supportive teachers and staff members. Good soccer program and dedicated parents. Great public school.My son has been in the school since kindergarten and he is now a sophomore in the high school with honor roll grades. I'm completely satisfied.

I started in Petrides as a freshman in high school. I thought that I was going to hate it because everyone already knew each other and I thought they wouldn't like the idea of new kids coming into the school. Like any change, it was hard at first, but it turned out to be an amazing experience. You get to know EVERYONE since its such a small school. The other kids in your grade become like family. I absolutely loved Petrides and deciding to go there was the best decision I have ever made. Its like one big family. Since its small, all the teachers know their students, and they help you out all the time. I don't think I would have been as happy in another high school. I had the best four years of my life because of the friends I made and the faculty&staff at Petrides.

Caring teachers in a sprawling campus with a private-school feel.

I have been attending Michael J. Petrides School since elementary school and enjoyed it until I reached high school. My positive experiences here convinced me to stay for high school, thinking that it would be just as great. I was wrong. The one thing that can be said about Petrides is that it requires its students to be self-motivating in many ways. The teachers tend to slack off during class and give students a lot of homework to make up for the 20 min. when kids sit in class talking with their friends because the teacher is just sitting at their desk. The Advanced Placement courses are limited because this school has a small population, but the most of the AP teachers don't take their courses seriously and really aren't concerned about whether their students perform well on the exams in May. The students' success is almost all their own.

My kids have been at this school for 3 years and I don't see anything special about the instruction. It has a good reputation, but that is it. Some teachers are rather mediocre... Discipline is not enforced. Kids are allowed to curse, punch, etc. without being punished. The principal and assistant principal (elementary) are pretty bad in my opinion. Communication with parents is zero. The after school program is pretty good (PAL). I just hope things change when my kids enter intermediate school. If it does not improve, we most likely enroll our kids in another school.

I went to Petrides since the day it opened in 1995 until last year when I graduated in 2007. if I had a child and was living on Staten Island, I would try whole heartedly to get my child into Petrides. The opportunities offered to the children at Petrides are that of most private schools. Small classes, great extra curriculars and amazing teachers. The faculty truly cares about the students, and does whatever it is they can for them. Petrides has made me the person I am today. One of my favorite things about Petrides would have to be its openness. A great example of this is Sing. Everyone comes together, puts hours of work in, and year after year puts on an amazing performance. It displays firsthand what students at Petrides have received in their education - they are all well educated, outspoken, positive members of their community, etc, etc....

Ahh, Petrides. My son was the only of my 3 children to go to public school.The other 2 attended private schools from Pre-K thru high school. He began Petrides gr. 2 & graduated last June.I believe it is a great school & like anything else in life - what you put in you will get out & Petrides gives the children the opportunity to do so by offering so much. I often felt lucky and a bit guilty as I would drive up the beautiful campus knowing most if not all schools do not have what this school has.From some of the finest teachers, to a principal who is almost always on call, individual laptop pc's, wonderful sport programs with new grounds to play -this school has it all! Academically my son did as well as his siblings in private school & the friendships he has is a gift for life.

My son has been going to this school since the 4th grade. I am happy he is safe and the teachers care. BUT, there is a problem. the school is located in the middle of nowhere unless you have a car. My son can not enjoy the after school activities because he cant get home by himself and I dont have a car! during the school hours its wonderful but my son would love to join the other kids in the sports and other activities, but most of them end after dark. I have 4 other children, 2 babies and 2 teens. I would love for my other boys to go to this school. but its the luck of the draw. So i have 3 kids in 3 different schools and two little ones to care for. Wish there was a better way to get siblings in.

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.

The NYC Department of Education asked parents, teachers and students about their school's learning environment. Results provide insight into school climate, such as whether the school is academically rigorous, safe, communicative and collaborative. Learn more

The information captured by the survey is designed to support a dialogue among all members of the school community about how to make the school a better place to learn. An overall category score is calculated for each respondent group (parents, teachers, or students) by averaging the scores of the questions within that survey category.

Category scores for each of the respondent groups are then combined to form overall category scores. Alongside the results for each school are the aggregated results across all NYC public schools, which are provided as a basis for comparisons.
