So far we have had a great experience with this school. The Child Study Team has been great in helping our (actually medically diagnosed with ADHD) son. He has two WONDERFUL teachers, I just hope he gets teachers next year who are as understanding. I don't like the "no siblings at events" rule, I feel like I miss out on things because I have a younger child who is not in school full-day yet. I don't know why the parent who posted on 4/27/11 felt the CST was responsible for testing their child but that's the parents responsibility. And if your 1st grader is being suspended in the 1st week of school it's not really the schools fault now is it? Yes, there are issues at this school, but I still feel that the teachers are doing the best with what they are given. The area we live in is by no means upper class, take from that what you will. The teachers have chosen to keep working, rather than strike, even though they still have no contract. I've seen some parents come into the office who don't even know their kids teachers name.

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.
