teachers in this school have some real issues. The say inappropriate things to small children, they need to be replaced with people who actually like to teach. You should choose blackwood schools much better

clementon elementary is by far the worst school i have ever dealt with. With such a small over all student population you would think that the education would be awesome. The poor test scores of the entire student body and the constant need for things the school should supply I am to wonder where all the money is going us tax payers pay for this school. I think the state and federal goverment need to audit them and figure out where the money is going. The need for 100's of ipad for the teachers why was that a necessary expense at the tax payers dime, let your child ask for a pencil and they are told we do not have money in the budget for that. But they have 10's of thousands of dollars for ipads. I am sure you can tell by my discontent over this i am a bit po about it

I really think my son has received a good education from CES.. I have had very few problems, in general. Principal is very nice and helpful. I wish they had more pull out programs for 'advanced' students, as of now they only have GT for LAL.

Clementon does a poor job on special needs students. They don't ever improve they stay the same unless U get your own help and you pay the money! Only then will you see success for your child who has a learning disability. I don't know if its the curriculum,that set up by administration; but the teachers seem to try but they are ineffective.

This school has come a long way. Clementon Elementary is doing an excellent job on improving all aspects of the school! The teachers and staff truly care about the children and go above and beyond each and everyday to insure that the children recieve the best educational experience possible. Great job Clementon Elementary...Keep up the great work!

I agree that the new nurse is a big issue. My son was also hurt during recess and yet I didn't find out til he came home from school. No phone call. No note. Nothing. The administration could be a little more communicative with the parents. The staff could also be more supportive when it comes to the fundraisers. Show up for Candy Bingo or the Spring Concert. Show us that you are really interested in our children.

I feel this school does not offer enough for students that are labled as problems. They tend to ship out students who they feel are problem children. There is a lack of communication between staff and parents. The class size the last time my son attended was 25 i don't know why its listed at 14 that's a joke.

I feel that Clementon Elementary School is a very good school. However, I do have some concerns such as when my son got hurt at recess and the school nurse did not contact me. I went to the school and advised them that I was not happy with the way the situation was handled. They expressed that they would do something about this. Another problem I have is the extracurricular activities. My son is in second grade and he has not participated in any plays, etc. Maybe he is too young, I don't know. This is something that I am going to question the school about. Other than these few items, Clementon Elementary School is a very good school and I believe with some more parental involvement we can make it an even better school.

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.
