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 is a small school with that enough cannot said about it. From the office staff to the teachers to the aides. It is where parents can be sure their kids are getting all they need. Also the YMCA (if needed) is right there and enough cant be said for the young adults who care for your kids before or after school. This school is important to our town and our kids future. Alden Primary is a great foundation for our childrens future education.

    It's been a very positive experience from the teachers staff and principal to the curriculum and extra help programs. Teachers are very positive creative and nurturing. I'm very glad my son's first experience was at Alden Primary as the environment was very supportive.

    Top notch teaching staff and programs. Parents are warmly welcomed into the classroom and to events. I can't rave enough about the emphasis on quality!
