Winslow Township's teachers are the best
—Submitted by a parent

Winslow Twp. School #1 is like a big hug. My twin 6th grade daughters attended it and my son is currently a second grader. The teachers and administrators are simply the most devoted, caring and creative folks I have ever met. I am a Proud Parent of Winslow Township!

My daughter is in 1st grade this year. She has been attending School No. 1 for two years now. What a great school. She is at one of the highest reading levels in her class thanks to her teacher who encourages her to read. Good Job Ms. Arena.

Great School - School #1 is probably one of the best schools in this Township. I would recommend the staff and teachers to anyone. It is ashame the rest of the district can not follow suit.

This has to be one of the worst schools in the state. My child was there for three years and every year due to people being unhappy with the district two or three of her friends would leave. The school does not allow room mothers and they use to have a program called the A team which punished children for being sick.

The principal and teachers at this school are wonderful. They really care about the students and the environment is one of family. Good job to the parents also. When there are school events, the place is full of parents and family members supporting their little ones.

We are exceptionally pleased with the education and support of the school staff! In our opinion, the children are encouraged and challenged to do their best, whether they have special needs and/or are considered gifted students.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 New Jersey used the New Jersey Assessment of Skills and Knowledge (NJ ASK) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in language arts literacy and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in science. 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.
