Standardized Testing

New York State Testing

Our Academy participates in New York State (NYS) Math and English Language Arts (ELA) Testing in 4th, 6th, and 7th Grade as well as Science Written and Practical Testing in 4th and 8th Grade.

Unlike some other schools we do not teach towards the test and go into “test mode,” rather teachers use examples throughout the year to prepare students.  Our Academy  minimizes the stress of testing by offering no homework during that time and emphasizing that students should do the best that they can.

See comparative chart of NYS Math and ELA 2016-2017 results below, which provides the percentage of students scoring at Levels 3 (Proficient) and 4 (Excels) in NYS standards for their grade.

The full testing from 2017 is available below.
