i am a seventh grader at WMS. it is a really good school. the sixth grade teachers are really good at welcoming the sixth graders to the middle school. it is a big transition from elementary school to middle school!!!!! this school is a little big and can be confusing at first, but once you know your way around, you will never forget it. i am in band and i love it!! the band teachers are sooooo nice and they really want you to be interested in playing an instrument! WMS is a really awesome school!!!!!

Washingtonville Schools are absolutely wonderful. The teachers are so kind and sweet. My child is doing great in school and they always are so helpful! The art and music programs are great. The chorus concert is always so superb! They really have good academics in Washingtonville. They teach them very well and it truly is a wonderful district.

Nothing but good things to say about this school and its entire staff. The only problem is with the building itself. It is old and overcrowded, but that issue is being dealt with now.

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.
