My daughter finished pre-k ,,,she had a wonderful learning experience with a loving teacher who really cares.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted May 6, 2012

The school is decrepit. Falling signs, peeling paint, cracking foundation and walkways, uncared for grounds and disgusting facilities. Also, the "expectation of failure" attitude from the staff. This school is failing and is on the chopping block. As an actively involved parent I do not see any other parents involvement. The only positive about this school is the Principle.

My son started in PreK and presently in K. The teachers thus far are great....I communicate via e-mail with all my concerns and they quickly reply and give me feedback. They treat you as if your child is the only one they have in thier class...with keen attention.

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.
