Howell Rd. is an extraordinary school. My daughter, who is now 14 and my son, who is 8 years old, attend Howell Road School and they have excelled not only in their learning skills, but in their social skills. Howell Road is a diversed school, that enhances the children's awareness of other cultures.

Great school! my kids entered the school mid-year. This was suppose to be a temporary move. They loved the school so much, we are considering staying in the area. They also did very well on all their subjects and made plenty of friends. This was great considering they did not attend a full year..

My daughter is in the 2nd grade and she loves HRS. I am a renter in this area and I want to buy a home but I hate the thought of moving out of the neighborhood. The teachers are so wonderful, my daughter has not lost her enthusiasm for learning. Parents are very involved, it is a very diverse neighborhood and there is a lot of extra curricular activities for all ages. HRS is GREAT! Carla

My son went to hrs in the 6th grade. When we first moved to valley stream back in 2002. I thought it was a phenomenal school. His 6 grade teacher was unbelievable with the students. They really do have a great academical program. She really looked out for him and referred him to enter the accelarated program in memorial and now he goes to central and is in the 10 grade now taking ap courses and in the high honor roll. District 13 really has great schools.

My child is in Kindergarten at HRS and is doing very well. I chose this area to live because of the school system. HRS has excellent programs. The teachers enjoy the children. They inform the parents of their lessons through weekly notes. To reduce class size, the school began a 4th kindergarten class. They're learning math problems using the Chicago Math Program where they observe everything around them as it relates to math. They have weekly art and music programs, gym, reading and computer labs. The school allows the parents to interact with their children during school hours for special arts and crafts projects. The parents volunteer when needed. The school has library time weekly for preschoolers. The principal is young and very supportive of the parents, children, and teachers. He is visible and very passionate about educating our children. I am very happy with this 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.
