CPS is a state-of-the-art green school but more importantly it has a wonderful staff of teachers who genuinely care about the education and well-being of each and every student.

Carlstadt has a brand new school. Everything in it is state of the art and it is a Green School helping the environment. Besides the new school, we have one of the best school systems around. Many people in town went to this school and now we have our own children going thru the same school system we attended. I cannot say enough about how good the people in this school are and what a great educational opportunity our children have here.

Having both gone through the system as a student and a student teacher, I do believe that this school is truly one of the best. All of the teachers there are dedicated to both the profession and the students. The teachers work hard to offer their students a multitude of opportunities, and the administration does its best to support the teachers. All of the teachers are incredibly wonderful, with Mr. Mangone being one of the best. Theis school will continue to shape the minds of all its k-8 students in its great new building.

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.
