Allamuchy is very family / student oriented school district. Because it so small, the teachers get to know the students and their families very well. This makes Allamuchy a wonderful place to work. Parents and teachers work together to support each other for the good of the students, helping to foster success for the students.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
