Paideia School 15 is an amazing school! I have two children that go to this school, (which transferred from private school), and this school has over exceeded my expectations. The principal and assistant principal are always easily available to address parental and pupil s concerns. The teachers that have taught my children thus far have been exceptional to say the least! The PTA works really hard at trying to get all parents involved in school functions. This school is a low key gem in Crestwood!

I like Paideia School 15. I think it has come a long way in the last couple of years. Most teachers are very dedicated to their students and willing to go that extra mile to make sure the students succeeded.

We are satisfied with the education that our son is receiving at Paideia School 15. My son is doing well and likes going to school. ALL of his teachers have been extremely competent, hard-working, and personable. The "class parents" keep us informed of important things that are going on and help us participate to the extent we can (both my husband and I work full-time.) Although the principal is more articulate and organized than the previous principal, we have not found him to be particularly helpful when we have interacted with him. In fact, we find him quite defensive if you question him (wonder what he's like if you actually disagree with him?) He clearly is used to dealing with children and teachers who do not question him. We avoid interacting with him unless absolutely necessary. The Assistant Principal, on the other hand, was very helpful. Unfortunately, she transferred to another school. Participating in the PTA is difficult. I volunteered to help numerous times with PTA projects and was never contacted. Other parents mentioned the same experience. I've just directed this energy to helping out my son's class parents instead.

My son is in the 8th grade this year. He has been in PS 15 since Pre-K. What I see in this school is, under the new principal's leadership, this school has improved a great deal; either on administration or academically. The 7th grade Science teacher for the year 2012-2013 is strict but inspiring. He deserves a 5 star rating. The 6th grade social study teacher for the year 2011-2012 is also an excellent teacher. My son likes to watch History channel is because of him. There is still a lot of room for improvement in Math, what about more take home assignments and a review test every week. This is my son's last year in PS 15, I am sure when he enter high school, he will remember all the nice things this school has offered him.

This is an amazing school with a strong PTA. They are extremely important to our school and parents need to support it. This is a well run school with a wonderful administration. Children understand that rules need to be obeyed, work needs to get done, and fun can be had by all. Parents really help shape a school. This is a perfect example.

My daughter has been in this school for 3 years. The teaching staff is wonderful. They have done a wonderul job given the budget cuts they face each year. There is a wonderful contingent of parents in this school. The parents are extremely involved and and have been a large part of my family's positive experience. The principal has just completed his second year at the school. He has been making strides in increasing test scores and also working with a reduced budget.

My 7 year old has attended Paideia School 15 for 3 years now. I think the teachers that she has had for the past 3 years have all been amazing. The parents work together so well and support the school 100%, the PTA is very hard working and the Principal is doing everything he can to elevate test scores. The teachers and aides are wonderful! I could not be any happier with my decision to send my children to Paideia School 15!

This is an excellent school for all kids. The teachers are great in the older grades, but not that good in the lower grades. The teachers (in lower grades) there are useless and have there favorite, so useless you are a favorite you won't get much attention. However, the teachers in the older grades are wonderful and help students with every need. The principal of the school tries to get the kids excited, but does a bad job doing so.

My daughter just entered Paideia School 15 this year in their Pre-kindergarten program. I was very nervous about sending her into a big school, by herself for the first time. I was quickly put at ease by the amazing teachers and staff at the school. I have been very impressed with the projects that have come home and all of the programs my daughter has been exposed to at such a young age. She is counting to 100, knows all of her letters, is starting to spell and socially has blossomed. The principal of the school is at the door greeting the children each morning. She is making sure hats are removed and the children are orderly. She is at every event. I think that it is extremely important for the school to have a visible leader and she is doing a wonderful job. The classrooms and grounds are well maintained.

We love Paideia School 15 because of its nurturing environment set by its principal, Ms. Leslie Hamilton and its caring teachers.

My name is Tabitha J. Colon-Jr. I currently attend 15 but i'm will be graduating next week (June 24)my class are the first 8th grade grauating class. I've been in this school since pre-k. I've seen many principals come and go and all I can say is this school is amazing. The only thing that i didnt like is that since there are middle school kids and elementary children in the same buiding the 6-8 had to also be treated like elementary children, which i don't find cool. But as long as you had you're education you are all good. I would recommend this school anybody.

Teaching to the test does not make our children the human beings that we want for tomorrow. Administration is extremely poor at this school. PTA - God bless them, they do work hard. Students - everything is selective at this school. A lot of room for improvement.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted February 2, 2008

Parents, teachers and administration are committed to making this school work. There is much rumbling about Yonkers schools, but so far, my experience of this school is a positive one--from the top down. My child is learning, thriving, and most importantly, happy and well-adjusted here. So much comes back to us, the parents. Our passion and persistence help keep things moving forward. The administration in this building is working positively, in tandem with parents. The school is a clean, bright, and new building. There is every possibility here--much of which is now being realized. And what isn't here yet...is just around the corner. Yes, test scores need improvement. I am convinced the new principal will help them rise--steadily. With the addition of an eighth grade next year, I know there will be bumps, BUT in the end, there is so much here. I am glad to be a part of it.

I've never met a more dedicated staff whose interests lie with the advancement of the children. I'm not saying 15 is the best...our test scores are not the best. We do work hard to help the kids to reach their potential and that is what parents should look for when choosing a school...compassion, integrity, leadership, and a staff that takes a concerted interest in your child.

My sister is a student at Paideia 15 and she has done better in this school then all of my other sibiling have done in catholic schools. It gave her the help she needed in speech. She overall loves this school. All of her teachers were terrific and extremely understanding.


Posted August 22, 2006

My son attended pre-k in another Yonkers elementary school that was supposed to be the 2nd best in the district- However, I was truly disappointed and switched him to Padeia 15 for kindergarten, and he is now entering the 2nd grade and I'm absolutely in love with this school!! The staff and the PTA involvement in the school is so genuine and enthusiastic, that it truly makes me feel happy and secure each and every day that I send my son to this school and I head into work- and I'm constantly recommending this school to people!

Very nice school, staff and students.

This school is an absolutely wonderful school. The teachers are very involved with all the students. They do everything possible to make sure all the parents are involved. All though music and gymnastics are not available to students in Pre-K, they do their best to make sure the children have plenty of exercise and interactions with instruments. I feel sorry for the person who wrote the review before me. I am in no way 'rich' and my child was accepted. He/she is probably just a parent who's mad that his/her child was not accepted into this GREAT school.

Posted July 22, 2004

This school, while being brand new and high tech is not all it's cracked up to be. If you aren't white and rich you can forget about being selected to attend this school. Pollitics rule this school. It's a shame that parents at this selective school complain about the quality of their playground , that happends to be quiet nice, while other students in the Yonkers school district suffer with over crowded classes and buliding in such disrepair that that ceilings are falling in. But if you are able to get into this beautiful school make sure your child is geeting the proper attention they deserve because they may fall through the cracks!

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.

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.

The different student groups are identified by the New York Department of Education. If there are fewer than 5 students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.
