New York State Assessments (NYSA)

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 http://www.engageny.org/sites/default/files/resource/attachments/test_score_release_letter_to_parents.pdf from New York's Commissioner of Education for more information on these changes. In 2013-2014 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. At present 2013-14 results are available only for 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 mee

    As myself being a student here I feel that FRES is an excellent school and always will be. They teach us good things for ex. we have the star qualities and the purple hands pledge. They challenge kids who are above others and for people that are a bit behind the teachers always help them out. I think that French Road is agreat school and would recommend it to anybody who is looking for a elementary school in Brighton!

    A very good school. Well it also has the worst teacher that ever stepped foot in a school! No sense of what he is actually teaching! He only care about hockey and the Buffalo Sabers. Rude and discriminative to non-white students. His dream is become a Broadway actor and he knows nothing about teaching. Not sure why the district hire such a unqualified failure as a teacher. You should get fired Mr. Bozek! You are the worst teacher ever!

    I was very surprised that a lot of teachers in this school don't like children. They don't care about children only about themselves and they look in principal and parents eyes. And principal does not or can not do anything with that.

    Brighton is fantastic! My husband and I moved here a couple of years ago to work at the U of R and couldn't be happier with the curriculum or teaching staff. Perhaps you've had a bad experience? The FRES principal is outstanding.

    I fully agree with the parents here. Many academics choose this public school and are very disappointed with the curriculum. In Brighton the bright kids are the ones that are left behind. Teachers are dealing with behavioral problems in integrated classes. Kids are not challenged to reach their full potential and teachers' union protect the mediocre educators. A big waste on talents. Admin will say Differentiation but I don't see it. They need to notch it up in order to justify collecting these huge taxes!

    School is great but I agree with the previous parent...Teachers are VERY so-so. If you don't push the system you won't get anywhere. Parents do make the district!!!

    Great teachers and students. No time wasted at French Road.

    The great majority of FRES children come from families where parents have advanced degrees and value education. Most teachers are only so-so they do very little to 'push' students and challenge them. Assignments and grading for the most part are a joke. The families is what makes FRES a top school.
