Ardsley Schools Exam Results Top County Average

ARDSLEY, N.Y. – Ardsley schools are once again among the top in the area, besting the average exam scores of Westchester County. The State Education Department this week released the results of the math and English Language Arts (ELA) exams taken by New York students in grades three to eight this past May.

According to the reports, students across the state scored roughly the same as last year. However,  students of the Ardsley Union Free School District had higher percentages of passing scores than the Westchester County average at each grade level.

Still, the state said the majority of students statewide met or exceeded the state's proficiency standards on both exams, but overall performance remains low.

In the state school reports, students are ranked from one to four, with one being the lowest and four the highest. Students who receive a three or a four are considered proficient or better.

The following percentages of Ardsley students were considered proficient or better in English, followed by the county average:

Third grade – 80.3 percent (county average – 66.4 percent)Fourth grade – 84.6 percent (68 percent)Fifth grade – 73.2 percent (64.5 percent)Sixth grade – 89.4 percent (66.5 percent)Seventh grade – 87.6 percent (59.2 percent)Eighth grade – 77.6 percent (59.2 percent)

The following percentages of Ardsley students were considered proficient or better in math, followed by the county average:

Third grade – 82.6 percent (county average – 68.3 percent)Fourth grade – 91.6 percent (74 percent)Fifth grade – 94.1 percent (72.7 percent)Sixth grade – 91.1 percent (69 percent)Seventh grade – 96 percent (70.5 percent)Eighth grade – 87.1 percent (65.9 percent)
