I think this school is too organized, it makes me feel like my child is going to work, not school, but I think this is a cool school if you like that kind of stuff.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted February 28, 2004

Hostos is a great place to learn. It creates a mini world. Hostos has a bank, newspaper, court, legislators, and many fun things that children learn about. Hostos is like its own world for the children and creates a great learning experience. I would recomend Hostos to anyone who wants a taste of the world in their elementry school.

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.
