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.

    As a 1964 graduate I give credit to this school system for providing me with the knowledge that I needed to be successful and productive in my life.. The heritage and quality of alumni supports even today that there is no better school of its size and accomplishment in New York State. 48 years later and I am stll iproud to be an alumni of Sherman High School.

    As a former student I personally feel that I couldn't ask for a better learning environment. I just wish there were more small schools around where students can get the attention they need and deserve.

    Luckily the principal who was so rude is gone! And you are right about the teachers. They are tops in the area care for their students and have high expectations. Unfortunately there are too few parents who show support for the school or are involved with their children. You are lucky to have a school where the teachers step up and make up the slack!

    Great school! I graduated from there 5 years ago. (2000) The teachers are all great people for the most part. Most of them even tend to be your next door neighbor.
