School 23 is indeed the best school in Yonkers. They were previously taken off the SINI list and were on the front page of a newspaper. It has improved very much and it is continuing to do so. The staff is very poliet and the students as well.

I live on the east side of town and last year my daughter was sent to attend PRE -K at School 23. I was really nervous, but we truly love the school. It is a nice, calm, caring school. Everybody knows the kids and you feel welcomed when you walk in. The aides at the door greet you with big smiles.

* 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.
