The school district has a poor showing. There are very few sports to join and not enough students to make sport teams. The administration is a joke. The principal is sub-standard and the faculty at least most of them are a joke. If the child has an I.E.P. they are discriminated against and the school is great at passing the buck. The Board of Ed needs to be scrapped and all new blood needs to be put in place. It is sad that a district this small has such poor control and everything is insubordination. The teachers are incompetent and if you are a good student with strong academics you will be fine. They have no control over bullying and most not all bus drivers are unsafe. The bus supervisor is the worst. Not all staff has proper certifications to do the job that they are employed to do. Over all the district stinks and if you can avoid the school it would be a smart choice to do so.

This school only wants childrens money. They expect everyone to have money, even in this poor economic situation. The teachers let their classes get out of control, and the kids are just horrible.

The quality of academic programs is very good. The teachers are dedicated to their students and the small class sizes make a difference. The availability of music, art and extracurricular activities are very good. The students have no reason not to join something!I believe the parents are involved and kept up to date through mail, phone and e-mail contacts.

Most of these students are very involved with extracurricular activities which provide the students with a fun and educational stress free environment. The academic programs are very informative and since there are few students in each class, students are given more one on one attention. Parents are very involved with this school. They receive letters and notices on the progress of their child's academic standing. If this individual were to be a child in this school, his/her learning experience would benefit greatly compared to more overcrowded public, private, or charter schools.

There are still problems here. There is no control of the older children in the middle/high school, and certain children are abused by their classmates with impunity. In addition, there are some problems with the middle/high school teachers, who don't follow through with agreed upon solutions. One teacher agreed to allow a child who had some family problems to complete late work (late due to family problems), assured the parent that she would allow it and then went back on her word and failed the student. Unbelievable!

This school district is in major need of a clean house. While there are a few teachers that are wonderful at their job, the majority isn't. A parent in this school district has to be on top of the classroom environment. I don't mean fellow classmates, it is the teacher's behavior and their lack of knowledge of the curriculum they are using.

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.
