My daughter just entered 1st Grade and she had a great year in Kindergarten. The teacher's and Principal are very caring to each student which is very important to me as a parent of a young girl. I am sad Mr. Kiewe was moved to the HS, he was wonderful with the kids.. I hope Dr. Saxton will fill his shoes quickly. :) I love this school!!

This is an awesome school. The principle knows everyone and is very active with all activities (even programs and events after school and on weekends). The teachers are great and really have a wonderful communication system. There are lots of extracuricular activies; including a great music, band, chorus, drama department and teacher. They have consistant awards ceremonies to praise all the kids on their individual accomplishments. The mentor program is extremely helpful and encouraging for the kids. The academics programs make it fun and rewarding for the kids to learn.

I have two girls attending the Horbelt school. One is entering 4th grade and the other 2nd. The academics have been superb. The kids really get a ton of individual attention, the extracurriculars are wonderful and the school provides a safe and warm environment.

The NJ ASK is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New Jersey. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.

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.
