17 Parent Reviews for John H West School

Average, at best... I moved to Plainedge from a neighboring community mainly because of their schools, but have yet to see anything "wonderful". High taxes but low standards and a lot of phony people in charge here.

I love the feeling of community that comes from the school. The Principal , teachers and staff truly care about each and every child as an individual.

The Principal, Mrs. Muscarella, is the best and the teachers all care about their children.

* 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.
