An incident at the school 04/2012 proved to be a deciding factor as to why I would never allow my son to continue at this school.

Inspite of the issues you still have some amazing teachers. Ms. Jones and Ms. Best are awsome. They are the only reason why my child is still in the school!! Read less
* 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.
