Kaufman Music Center's Special Music School is once again making news for topping the list of NYC schools.

Congratulations to all the SMS students, teachers and parents!
"...a new ranking of the more than 700 public elementary schools in New York City sorts the programs based on fourth-graders' scores on the state's 2012 English Language Arts test, one of the most important factors in middle school admissions.
"The schools at the top of the list — The Anderson School and the Special Music School, both on the Upper West Side — saw all of their fourth-graders receive a passing score of a 3 or 4 on the English test last year, according to the annual ranking by Tom Goodkind, a lower Manhattan accountant and community leader."
