Children with attention issues cannot be helped in a classroom of 28-30 students. However the Committee on Special Education will place your child in the appropriate setting /class size if the attention issues are impacting on the child's ability to learn.

This school is great. My son has learned so much since his first day of PreK. They group together academics, every day life, mannerism, etc. He has grown in every bit of his every day life and I am so proud. The teachers are caring and you can speak with someone at anytime. I thank them for caring for my baby his first time away from us.

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.
