We have one child attending this school. All I say is that we love Stony Point Elementary. All the teachers our child has had up to now have been high quality teachers that have cared, taught & nourished our child.

I have two children attending SPE. I think the school is doing a good job and offers academic progams that challenge. Parents can be as involved as they would like to be.

I have 2 children in SPES and am impressed with both the teachers and the principal. The teachers keep parents involved in all activities, has plenty one-on-one time and sends home progress reports throughout the year. The PTA does a fantasic job with school activities and fun-raisers.

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.
