Assessment Reports


What makes Byram Hills a great place to learn? One aspect of great organizations is sustained excellent results. According to Jim Collins (2001) in his book Good to Great, he states, “A great organization is one that delivers superior performance and makes a distinctive impact over a long period of time.” The assessment reports below, presented to the Board of Education each year, demonstrate one aspect of Byram Hills to show our journey toward excellence.

 

Each report tracks our New York State assessment data over time. Also, the student work samples, called exemplars, provide additional data to demonstrate excellence. These are “snapshots” of the high quality work produced by Byram Hills students. We believe that over time the story of excellence emerges.
