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.

    This may sound strange but I attended Charles O. Dewey Jr. HS from Sept. 1955 thru June 1958 when I graduated at the age of 14. This was a wonderful time of my life. I started elementary at PS 2 on 46 St. between 3rd & 4th Ave. This school is now listed as PS 1. After I graduated from PS136 I went to Bay Ridge High School and graduated in June 1961 at age of 17yrs & 3mos. The principal at that time was Elizabeth F. Fitzpatrick.. I see that this school has also changed to a different name. I'm just reminiscing and wanted to tell my story. While attending these schools I lived at 430 - 46th Street. I went to work at Manufacturers Hanover Trust Company (Bank) which has since merged and merged again to become Chase Manhattan / JP Morgan. I worked for that bank for almost 20 years until I married and moved to Indiana. I am now retired and reside in the State of North Carolina. Wishing all students of these schools the very best and you can be the best when you put your mind and heart into whatever you wish to be....Good Luck Kids......Stay well stay safe and stay out of trouble.....There will be no future for the good when you surround yourself with trouble makers.

    I used to go to that school. I just graduated and. The principal is very very very nice he encouraging you gets involved (if you want him to). it's great. The staff is good. BUT the students there are ok. Ive been observing that the 6th graders there now are pretty...bad. There are some good students out there you just have ti make sure your child makes the right decisions. ) good luck
