I love this school, I went to this school and wanted my children to experience all the positivity, care and excellent education that they have all ways have provided. I love that Mr. Janowitz always begins the school with powerful words of encouragement and also I stills in the students to be kind to one another. Now a days people are losing that and it's great to see kindness is a priority here and no bullying. I wish this school went up to 8th grade, my 3 boys love this school

The teachers are all great. They keep the parents in the loop with everything that's going on. It's a nurturing environment and my daughter looks forward to school every day. They over a variety of wonderful programs as well.

We have been thrilled with the dedication and professionalism of all the teachers our children have had at MAS. Our children receive many individual education opportunities in a warm and nurturing environment. The PTA has organized afternoon language classes and additional science and chess classes during lunch hours. My children have excelled at MAS. The school administration is phenomenal. The PTA is extremely involved and committed to supporting all the children in the community. We love MAS and are very happy with the White Plains school district.

Wonderful principal who works with the parents to find creative solutions to challenge kids. Extremely talented enrichment teacher, and all the teachers willing to go out of their way to provide best possible learning environment for the kids. Discipline and parent involvement is good. Science can be ratcheted up. Wish they introduced a foreign language at the elementary level, even Spanish instruction would be appreciated.

I like the fact that they evaluated my son and began extra programs to strengthen him in reading and math. They also offered afterschool classes before state test, which proved to help my son a great deal.

The teachers are good. The math curriculum is not great as is science. High level of parent involvement. Weak leadership.

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.
