10 Parent Reviews for Scarsdale Middle School

This school is great! As a student, I think I have more authority and experience than a parent and less bias than a teacher. I have had a great experience here and I'm sad to be going to high school! This school emphasizes critical and creative thinking skills and I have extreme respect for all my teachers. ...  Read more

If your child is an independent learner and overachiever this is the perfect school. If your child needs ANY additional help, go elsewhere. The house counselor is jovial and pretends to be dialed into everything but there's no substance behind it. Our child struggled with the transition to middle ...  Read more

I am giving this school one star because my child has a learning disability. If you are a parent who is even thinking of moving to Scarsdale, know this: they only educate high achievers. If your child has any kind of disability or difficulty learning, they will sink like a stone. The school does not ...  Read more

This school is very challenging and they make you work your hardest, but it's as ivy league as it gets

Wow! I absolutely love the Middle School. The entire new wing is gorgeous... the teachers are nice and the work is hard but we greatly surpass state expectations. It's a gorgeous school in a great suburb with amazing people. There are plenty of extracurriculars: guitar club, care club, peer leadership, ...  Read more

* 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.
