Sanfordville is an excellant school for children. Teacher's are exceptional and staff is friendly. This school offers alot of programs for all interests. Sanfordville has an open door policy, that parents can come in and have lunch with kids. Parents have numerous opportunities to get involved doing various activities throughout the year. Kids love the teachers and staff! That's something to be proud of!

Those parents that want to get involved can at all class levels. The teachers are very supportive of students. The computers are very old though in the lab and in the classrooms. I understand this is typical throughout the elementary level in warwick. Surprisingly you would think they would be more up dated with this area since it is so quickly growing. Overall the support of the staff is wonderful for the students

Dynamic, forward thinking school. Their optional 'Partners in Education' program promotes student-centered learning in interdisciplinary, multi-age classes with dedicated teachers that encourage parental involvement. It's been a great experience for our whole family.

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.
