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.

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.

    Teacher sent me an email criticizing my son and comparing him to a student that she favored. She criticized his learning style his mastery of the subject and his personality of not sucking up to her as the other student and parents had done. The principal took her side against my son and granted her tenure even after I shared the outrageous email. The superintendent took the principal's side as well. That is this ridiculous school district in a nutshell.

    I really think this school is amazing. I really used to hate school but when I moved and came here the teachers and students were really welcoming. The teacher does what ever thay can to help us. They also have great achademic programs for every one and tons of community programs.

    This school is extremely overrated. They teach to the middle. Everone is taught the same - whether they're ahead or behind. The homework load is ridiculous. One hour fir a 6th grader? It's more like 2-3 hrs a night.

    no child left behind is a joke. kids that have been failing since elementary are STILL failing..they just pass them along. Middle school does not follow its own handbook and bullying is never properly addressed. they got rid of many programs. just 'run of the mill' type of school. sports over academics..too bad!

    The North Shore Schools come with the most incredible qualities in leadership discipline and a unique love for their community. Amazing parental and student involvement and respect in school and also around the community. A wonderful place for our children to grow and learn the quality of life. Everyone matters and everyone cares!
