School is too small! The students are cramped, they have no storage or cafeteria. Students have to eat their lunch in their classroom, which does not allow any time for a child to socialize freely. The gym teacher is not qualified to instruct physical education. The gym teacher has a limp and can not show students how to do a proper stair climb, but gets angry and sits them out if they do it poorly. Most of the teachers are "grandfathered" in, have no patience or compassion toward the students. These teachers should probably retire, and make way for more vibrant, lively teachers! The aids the school hires are not fit and probably should have their background checks run more closely.

Chase is not only dedicated to its students, but to the community as a whole. It's a place where families come together to learn, socialize, and participate in the various activities that are offered throughout the school. Through the hard work and dedication of the staff at Chase, I'm confident that my children will have the best education possible.

Impressive school. Putting off an out-of-state move until the children have completed Chase.

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.
