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.

    This is an excellent school with dedicated caring and creative teachers. Students in grades 1/2 and 3/4 are in multiage classrooms which is wonderful. Older students in the class come back to school already knowing the routine and are able to help the new students learn this as well. Older students' learning picks up where they left off the year before since the teacher already knows where the child was at.

    It's a nice little school in a rural community. Class size is small and teachers really know the students. Parental involvement is appreciated.

    Mixing the grades is a huge mistake. My daughter who loved school in Kindergarten and did great is now having many problems getting adjusted in 1st grade with the 2nd graders. A lot of bullying by the older students in the class.

    School has quality academic programs for children who need extra assistance. Music art and sports are offered to a degree but in very low doses. Nothing of quality. Teachers are a mix. Some need to be monitored more carefully. My children have had a few quality teachers. School is a little behind in time but for the most part shows care to its students and is staffed with some very nice people.

    The parent involvement is great and greatly appreciated by the teachers. The academis programs are pretty good but they seem to focus more on the average student and the special needs not higher acheivers. The extra activities are great but doesn't include football.

    Does a good job with the money it has. Mixing first and second grades not a good thing in fact it's a bad thing. Same with mixing third and fourth grades. Overall a grade of C-.
