I agree about the administration, my child has been here since pre-k and now I have many different faculty members telling me to transfer my child elsewhere. So far I have only met a few teachers that are dedicated to life long learners, otherwise too many teachers are just in it for the prestige they think they derserve

I have a surprisingly different outlook on Bellevue. The principal doesn't listen to the parents and she refuses to deal with a student that is in the least bit difficult, regardless of the circumstances surrounding the incident. Some of the teachers are fantastic, but most of the older ones seem to be just biding their time until retirement. The vice-principal and school psychologist, on the other hand, did their best to work with my child under harsh conditions that I can only hope they don't come across often.

Bellevue is a wonderful school with very dedicated teachers and staff. I wish that they had more afterschool activities and make them available to all grades, not just 3rd through 5th. My daughter went to Bellevue from Kindergarten through 5th and my son is now in first grade and we have enjoyed every year.

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.
