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.

    This school used to be one of the best in the city.... until the new principal took over a few years ago. It's all about the testing numbers not about the students - least of all their safety and well being. The teachers are lazy and the principal only helps your child if you contact the school board. The PTO members are the hardest workers there well the select few allowed into the clique... But with all the fundraisers I'm constantly giving money to my kid goes bowling and to the Munstitute??!! Oh and a walk to a free show at Proctor! What a joke! I wish I could give less than one star.
