I go to this school and it is be om words amazing, the school haves fun sports and clubs! for example- Soccer, Volleyball, Basket ball teams are just some of the sports you can try out for! And if sports aren't your thing Brigantine North Middle School haves Art club, Computer Club, and more! People usually complain about bulling in school- its hard for me and my friends to believe because we are never- and if so, hardly ever bullied. If we are we know what to do, this school is almost like a second home! I believe our school is one of the best, but that's just my opinion! Thanks for reading! ~Middle School 6th Grade Student

This is by far the BEST school in this area. Teachers excited about education and are ready to teach (and learn). Middle school allows them to change classes often and take on more responsibility, as they get older. There is a no bully rule that allows students to go to school without fear. Children who are struggling to keep up with their pears are offered ACA Plus which allows children in smaller groups to go over, what has been taught, in a smaller setting with more one on one time with the teacher. I highly recommend the Brigantine Elementary school and Brigantine North Middle School. All children are taught in a safe, friendly, ethnically diverse school where God is still in the Pledge of Allegiance.

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.
