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.

    UFTECS is the worse school I ever seen. My big kids went to public schools and it was so much better. They have all these kids has workers teachers deans and etc. Kids dont know anything just have bachelor or whatever it take to be a teacher. The Worse School Leader and Dean Administration Ever!!!!! My daughter went to the junior high so much better UFTSCS.

    My daughter belongs to the first class of students at UFT ECS. She is now in the 5th grade and you can't ask for a better example of what public education should be like. Students are taught to be full citizens intellectually socially etc. Care is taken to help students achieve. It is a community in which everyone is invested. Every single staff member knows my child's name and what works to bring out the best in her. She graduates this year and I take pleasure in knowing that UFT prepared her well for the next level of her academic career.

    My son has been attending UFT charter school since it began with the 6 grade and now he is in one of the first 9th grade high school classes. I love this school it is more like a second family I know all of the teachers and staff and we commmunicate well together. He gets top class eduacation with me having to pay for him to get it. I recommend that all children have this opportunity it is really a great experience.

    My daughter is in the fourth grade at the UFT Elementary Charter School. The school really focuses on developing the whole child both academically and socially. I am extremely pleased with the teachers administrators and staff and especially Ms. Alvaranga who has taught my daughter well for two years in a row. Thanks UFT!

    My daughter attend this school and I am proud to say that this a a great school and they also learn the kids to be respectful and to strive towards greater heights. i am a bit concerned about parents taking less time in their children and to teach them to be respectful in and out of school . There are great teacher that is will to teach your child but you as a parent have to start at home. especially if they are usin public transportation.

    This is as close as you can get to a private institution minus the costly tuition! As a staff member within the extended day program I enjoy working alongside such remarkable and professional individuals. This school focuses on strengthening the community and instilling morals and social skills in all the students. When students leave here they are destined to become upstanding citizens in their communities. Miss Sharon Johnson Groundwork Inc.

    I am extremely pleased with the UFT Elementary Charter School. My daughters are in the second grade and kindergarten. I love the fact that they are given something to strive for on a weekly basis. It is a family environment. If you long for the days of the way school was when you were a child then the UFT is for you.

    This school is great. My daughter is now in the second grade and the skills she has acquired both academically and socially are tremendous. I cant wait to see what the State scores will be in a few years
