About

Forts Ferry School students are learning the basic concepts of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division as well as application of these skills in problem-solving situations. Assessment includes unit tests for each topic, yearly standardized tests, New York State Assessments, and an end-of-the-year assessment which includes core math skills and a long-term novel project. Writing is also integrated into other subject areas. For example, they are expected to write in math to explain how they solved a problem. Assessment occurs through teacher-directed assessments and through a New York State English language arts assessment administered to all third, fourth, fifth and sixth graders.

Following New York State Curriculum Standards, Forts Ferry School students begin with study about themselves and their community, and progress to studying regions around the world. In fourth grade the emphasis is on local history. In fifth grade the curriculum emphasizes the regions of the Western Hemisphere, particularly Canada and Mexico, and in sixth grade Europe and the ancient civilizations of Greece, Egypt, and Rome are studied. At every grade level, the children are required to read and write about what they are studying.
