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.

    I think they need to increase teacher communication. When my child attended there you had to bleed the school for information.

    There seems to be a lack in leadership and consistency. There are not many programs offered. some of the sports programs are improving but that's because there are some great parents involved. just because we're a poor district doesn't mean we should have to go without either.

    Holley has a pretty good academic program. The teachers are nice and helpful. They try and make learning easy and fun. For music you have the normal band and chorus. We also have a school musical every year. As for sports we have cross-country football soccer and cheerleading (soccer and football) in the fall. We have wrestling and basketball in the winter. And softball tennis baseball and track in the summer. Are best sports are soccer and cheerleading. As for parent involvement I find there is very little.

    A nice small school that has a great teacher/student ratio. Most teachers are great at what they do and really care about the students. My only gripe is that they need more language offerings and an orchestra would be nice.

    We are slowly starting to get out of the dark ages. We have a good leader now. Hope our climb up continues.
