P.S./M.S. 315 in University Heights improves fourth grade test scores

A Bronx elementary school is turning its record around, going from underperforming to winning awards. P.S./M.S. 315 has dramatically improved its fourth grade test scores and is the only school in the Bronx to receive the Pathfinder Award. Many say it's a big step, because the school was just taken off the state's underperforming list this year. The school has added extra help for students in English and math. It also offers programs on Saturdays to help students prepare for standardized tests. Teachers say the success of the school is a group effort and students have been a lot more confident in the classroom.
