My daughter has attended Carroll Hill Elem since 1st grade and is currently in the fourth grade. I was very hesitant to pull her out of a private school and put her in a public city school but so far I think I made the right choice.She has always been at the top of her class which I believe is due to the dedication of her teachers and the principle. The daily morning program is one of my favorites. It brings everyone together, It has a special event every day and kids faces light up when they see their parent there. What a way to start their day.

This school promotes education, safety and a sense of community like no other I've seen. From the moment you walk through the doors, you are greeted by warm smiling teachers and staff that make you feel welcome. The faculty cares for and seems to know each student, whether they have that child in their classroom or not. It's refreshing to see such a diverse student body mesh together. The principal commands respect and interacts with the students, on their level daily. He visits each classroom and partakes in whatever activity is going on, be it a spelling test or a class play. He also chooses a couple of children from each class occasionally and buys them lunch, and they eat in his office with him. They have a daily morning program that promotes school and patriotic spirit, where parents are encouraged to attend. Truly a above and beyond school.

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.
