Our students in the 3rd-5th grades will take the NYS Math test on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week. The state exams assess our students' learning from the entire school year up until this time. In order to successfully complete this test, a lot of work has gone into preparing our students.
Heketi's curriculum focuses on life-long learning. We create a curriculum that develops our students' critical thinking. Our preparation for the state tests included reviewing past tests in class, revising responses on these tests, and then answering new, complex questions. We will never be a school that only prepares for state exams, but we will make it part of all that we do.
Please be sure that your child reads at home every day!

TESTS ARE IMPORTANT. WHAT ELSE?
