New York State Assessments (NYSA)

In 2011-2012 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. The results for English language arts and math are displayed on GreatSchools profiles and the science results will be added when they are released in the Fall of 2013. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New York. The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.

    This school is good. My daughter was a student when it was up to second grade. Her teacher was so hands on that the knowledge she acquired while there has helped her tremendously. My son is also a current student and I must say that they are the best elementary school in district 9. I'm glad its going up to 5th grade.

    This school states it provides services for children with disabilities but it doesn't provide any services at all. This school gets a thumbs down.
