Excellent Principal for the High School Mario Fernandez. However Middle School principal is very unprofessional wearing tight short skirts. High school VP definitely likes to harrass and bully the students. This school tracks your students so if you have a student in A level they will not have classes with B or C level. Not a lot of clubs, lot of bullying by students and the aides are on power trips....screaming at kids. I felt this school de-moralized students, much better schools in neighboring areas (Schuylerville) as well as wonderful private schools.

Mediocre school with much better school district options in local area. Teachers are competent and generally appear enthusiastic. Small district size limits resources and community support is marginal. Stillwater offers very few extracurricular options for students not directly involved in school activities so there appears to be many "wandering" youths in the village. No sports or park field available off campus within village walking or biking distance. School staff is defensive if district policies are critisized or suggestions for improvements are made. Better local choices elsewhere.

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.
