Students from St. Stanislaus Kostka Catholic Academy have performed above the city and state averages on standardized tests. In fact most students achieved scores that are double the city and state averages.

The tests in mathematics and English, prepared by the State Department of Education are administered in all kinds of schools in New York State, both in public and private, including Catholic schools. Students take the tests in the spring, the scores are analyzed over the summer and publicized at the beginning of a new academic year.

The newest data indicate that Greenpoint’s St. Stanislaus Kostka Catholic Academy, which educates a great number of students from Polish families, is performing better than the average school in New York. For example 33.2 percent of fourth-grade students across the state met or exceeded proficiency standards in the English test, while only 31.1 percent of students in the city met or exceeded those standards. Meanwhile, 73 percent of  fourth graders from St. Stanislaus met or exceeded state standards. For 6th grade math, 38.1 percent of students across the state and 33.8 percent of students in the city met or exceeded the grade level proficiency standards, while at St. Stanislaus, that result was achieved by 84 percent of sixth graders.

Students, parents, teachers and the principal of St. Stanislaus Kostka Catholic Academy are proud of their success. “The scores are a result of hard work of both students and teachers,” said Christina Cieloszczyk, principal of St. Stanislaus Kostka Catholic Academy. “It is even more gratifying knowing that our school does not conduct classes geared only toward the tests, as is the case in some schools. Daily, we devote equal attention to teaching a variety of subjects,” Ms. Cieloszczyk added.

“The above-average scores are also thanks to the extra time I spent with those students who were lagging behind. We would meet each morning at 7:30, before the school day began to study more,” said Bozen Konkiel, a math teacher, now proud of her students.

The tests scores are an important piece of information for parents sending their children to New York schools. That’s also what the school’s reputation is based on.

“If the test scores are too low, often the city decides to replace the principal. However, Catholic schools don’t compete among themselves in this way,” said the math teacher.

St. Stanislaus Kostka Catholic Academy belongs to the Brooklyn diocese, but is under the care of a couple of Greenpoint churches: St. Stanislaus Kostka, St. Anthony and St. Cyril and Methodius.

“All these churches cooperate with our school, although in the past it was assigned to St. Stanislaus Kostka Parish,” the teacher added.

St. Stanislaus Kostka Catholic Academy is well known among the Polish Americans living in Greenpoint and the vicinity. “Back in the day, we used to admit children whose parents were both Polish immigrants. Most recently, however, all kids can attend our school. Currently, students with Polish background constitute 75 percent of the student body at St. Stanislaus,” said Cieloszczyk.
