BRONXVILLE, N.Y. The Bronxville Union Free School District is ahead of Westchester in standardized testing this year, coming in with scores above the state average. Both math and English test scores released on Tuesday show some of the highest scores in the county.
Students in grades three through eight scored 34.7 points higher than the statewide average of 55.1 in English testing and 28.7 points higher than the statewide average in math at 64.8.
There is some positive momentum in these numbers, state Board of Regents Chancellor Merryl H. Tisch said in a news release. In the fall we will begin to phase in a new, more challenging, content rich curriculum and continue to press for the implementation of a rigorous teacher evaluation system in every district across the state.
Bronxville students were tested in April and were ranked into the following categories according to the state : level one means the student is below standards; level two indicates students meet basic standards; level three means students meet proficiency standards; and level four means students exceed proficiency standards.
In Bronxville, 92.8 percent of third-graders scored level 3 and higher in English, fourth- graders 92, fifth-graders 94.4, sixth-graders 87.9, seventh-graders 83.1 and eighth-graders came in at 89 percent.
As for math scores, 95.4 percent of third-graders were at level 3 or higher, 96 in fourth-grade, 92.8 in fifth-grade, 90.1 in sixth-grade, 95.7 in seventh-grade and 91.4 in eighth-grade.
