After meeting the principals of no. 27 and Enrico Fermi and comparing school offerings, E.F appeared to stand head and shoulders above, boasting the montessori curriculum, a music/arts/drama/language program package, as well as having its students accptd at the city's montessori-based middle schools. Both the principal and vice principal spoke with pride, enthusiasm and conviction about their commitment to 'their' kids. Because of this my husband and I balloted E.F. first. By the beginning of the school year, the principals had been reassigned, new teachers were brought in, and the programs were cut! our son's first teacher took away his peanut butter crackers, apple, distilled water and soy milk lunch because she dubbed them 'unacceptable.' A school injury went untended and unreported until we complained. The second teacher wanted him to sit and color all day stating: he's more advanced; I have to focus on the others!

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. 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.
