Posted August 25, 2013

I have to start of by saying that this school is completely different than what I thought and heard from others. The teachers just care about their pay checks and never reply to emails. The only way to contact them is by scheduling an appointment. But the office makes this impossible. My child is learning disabled and learns showers than others. I find that the school does not cope well with special needs students or their parents. Nevertheless, this school is much better than Nutley's slowly rotting schools. I went through hell with them and that is part of the reason I moved to Cedar Grove, but now I regret it. Looking forward to move to West Milford or Millville, relatives say that the public schools are top notch. I hope my advice was helpfull, specifically to parents with learning disable kids.
