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.

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 was recently on a tour of this school. They have 5 Pre-K classes (all are in a separate wing with their own bathroom). School is bright sunny two playgrounds (one to finished this year) students have designated areas for any speciL services they may need; currently offer dance enrichment which will be offered to lower grades come Fall 2015; music is in the works. diferrential tasks given to students who are advanced. Administration knew names of students. Hidden gem.

    My daughters are in 5th and kindergarten here. Amazing school. The staff is so friendly. I transferred my daughter in 3rd grade because I did not like her previous school they were so rude and the students were so bad she couldn't even concentrate in class. But here at PS380 they are respectful and listen to you and your child. My daughter has asked for help in math from her teacher and she will take her lunch period to help her. Great school I'm sad my daughter is graduating this year. I wish it went to 8th grade. Lol

    My daughter is now going into the 3rd grade. My experience in observing the school teachers and principal is exceptional. They truly are dedicated to the children which is refreshing to see. They are informative with the parents and if anything is wrong you can always go the principal Ms. Vitolo who is amazing and resolves things immediately and the staff follows up so you are always in the loop of everything. I wish this school went to the 8th grade because it is just that AMAZING. This is the foundation of our children's future and I am happy to say that my daughter has a great future ahead because of this school and the great staff.

    My son has been a student at PS 380 since Pre-K. He is now in the 3rd grade. I LOVE THIS SCHOOL. He is learning so much. He is in an early enrichment program which is teaching him how to work on computer programs like Microsoft office. He has already put together a Power Point presentation at home. The teachers are wonderful and everywhere he goes all staff know his name. They are very family oriented. Can't wait for my daughter to attend in 3 more years.

    My two daughters go to PS 380. One is in 1st grade the other is in 2nd grade. I myself went to PS 380 and graduated when I was in 5th grade. This school is a very family oriented school. The parent staff are wonderful and friendly people. The Principal is very much involved in each child's life. I live in Queens and I travel 40 minutes everyday just so they can go to PS 380.

    There is no availibility of extracurricular activities; however the quality of academic programs is excellent. With the assistance of greta teachers your child will definitely benefit from an education at PS 380.

    My son has been enrolled in P.S.380 since 1st grade. The teachers have really worked well with him. Teachers really want to see the children advance. Teachers have made themselves available for extra help with students in need. The parents involvement is excellent. We get to see what they do in class and early in the year we get a break down of what's needed from the parents to help the children. Behavior issues are taken seriously. I love this school.

    My son attended this school for Pre-K and I was quite impressed at his achievement. He came back for 1st grade and is performing extremely well with Mrs. Rosenbaltt. She seems to be an inspiring person.
