Weedsport is amazing. Hey i go there. There's great sports programs and after school activities. From my point of view (and my grade) i don't see a lot of trouble going on.

I attended Weedsport back in the 70's and moved back in the area in early 2000's. The education for my children was outstanding. Everyone from the adminstration, Board of Education, teachers, coaches and aids care deeply about providing a quality, well rounded experience at Weedsport.

Weedsport is an excellent school. I should know I go there. From a student point of veiw most of our teachers are kind and honestly care. But there are so many demands, and High School puts so much stress on us. It doesn't help that our school is the place where all the 'bad' kids are sent. Our school thinks that we can have a good effect on them when it's actually the opposite. Also, we have a change of leadership almost everyyear. I have had a different principle every year at weedsport. Now the school notices the bad things that happen and are cracking down on very stupid things. The bad people ruin it for the good.

All three of our children attended school in the Weedsport District from kindergarten through 12th grade and the youngest graduated in June 2007. We cannot speak highly enough of the teachers and staff at Weedsport. The classes were challenging but also included many very creative activities. These are people who genuinely care about their students and do all in their power to help them succeed. All of our children went on to college and did very well with the solid foundation of knowledge they acquired in Weedsport.

The Middle School seems to teach students how to maneuver through the yearly equivalency examinations instead of providing them with a well rounded education. There also seems to be some instability in terms of Principal leadership. The Middle school has changed Principals three times in the last three years. There are students with known disciplinary problems who are allowed to harrass the other students without fear of repercussion. The school is very poor in terms of teaching acceptance of cultural diversity. I regret the decision to enroll my child in this school district.

Some of our children have graduated and some still attend school at Weedsport. Right from 'The Little School' on they received a terrific education from caring, dedicated teachers! They have had many choices of extra-curricular activities - musical, artistic, academic, sports, and community service in nature as well as student government. The community is invited to attend many school functions each year and are kept informed of the activities even if they don't have students in the family with a newsletter sent to all residents. One persistent problem is the constant change of leadership. Being a small community many administrators use our schools as a stepping stone in their quest to go on to bigger things in their careers. They stay for a short while and leave abruptly. Thankfully, the rest of the staff does not have such a turn-over. As parents and alumni, we are proud of our schools! Go Warriors!

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.
