SPECULATOR -- The 2013 New York State Report Card for Lake Pleasant Central School shows children are getting a pretty good education here as compared to statewide.

In particular, grade 8 English Language Arts students scored much higher than the state average, 82 percent as compared to 34 percent, and science students did even better. They aced their assessments, scoring 100 percent.

The only exceptions are grades 3 and 6-8 mathematics, where scoring is significantly lower than statewide. However, grade 5 math students here scored 14 percentage points higher than statewide.
