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 have two kids at Kipp AES and I'm extremely happy with their performace. Staff and Faculty are very pleasant and constantly engage kids and family. Everyone has a sense of responsibility for the sucess of the students. My kids know their sprout values which essentially stresses taking pride in their hard work.

    After being in a lottery wait for 2 years I got called by KIIP in The Bronx and I couldn't be happier. My twin boys have done a 360 turn arround on academics and behavior. This school has a " no Tolerance policy" that helps keep the children and parents on check. No matter were the child comes from he gets no special treatment every one gets treated the same with the same respect and attention that they deserve. I'm very pleased with this school my kids are going in to their second year and all I have to say about it is positive things. Thank you KIIP for making a diference.

    This school is great. I have two kids that attend this school and they both are doing well. The work is rigorous and the days are long but it will all pay off in the long run.
