Feedback and Testing


The academic year is divided by trimesters in the Lower School, with progress reports electronically available at the end of each trimester. Parent-Teacher Conference Days occur in December and March when student progress is reviewed. Parent communication is integral to Staten Island Academy's academic program; thus, parents are encouraged to contact teachers about their child's progress. 


Through teacher observation, student assessment in Early Childhood and Lower School occurs daily. This allows teachers to be flexible and address each student’s unique learning style.
