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.

    Our School enrollment is about 425 students. It is just like being in private school. Each student receives so much attention and assistance.Administration and faculty are familiar with every student regardless of grade. We all care about the needs of every student. Moving children forward is our top priority.

    Although my daughter had a great pre-K experience I feel the school isn't as welcoming and friendly as other elementary schools. A lot of parents aren't involved in the school the administration acts like bullies and I didn't like the way certain things were handled. Letters never went out to parents when head lice became an issue. Many of whom I spoke with knew nothing about it.

    Extremely poor leadership and understanding of the school's community from the principal. Can't give a good review. I hope it doesn't get over looked.

    Great School with great PTA. Needs more parent involvement in the school. The teachers really care about the students.

  • (10 years ago)

    Is an overall good school but the PTA has too much involvement on what they think is right for the children. We as parents always have to supply bathroom tissue hand towels soap etc and I dont think that we should have to do this. This is a public school it should be funded by the board of ed.
