Excellent leadership - only complaint is no choral program. Our oldest has severe physical/mental disabilities and the system has been wonderful.

My daughter attends Drew Middle and we have been very pleased. She is an honor student, has been accepted into the TIP program from Duke University. Any time I have had any questions or concerns the faculty and staff have been wonderful. The teachers take great pride in their students, they really care. I would not even consider another school for her, and my younger daughter will be attending this school when she is older. There is not as much parental involvment as I think there should be, but unfortunately, this is a common problem everywhere.
