It is a shame that this school was chosen to host pre-school/pre-k. program for Clifton residents. The principle and the secretary are both very unwelcoming, hostile and rude. If you are the parent of a 3 year-old and want to register your kid to pre-school you should be prepared to be humiliated by the principle. He is simply to eager to show you the door and to mention all the different private pre-schools that you could go to. They literally tell you that they don't want you there and that they don't have the time for you. Simply awful experience!!

This school has a wonderful Special Education program. Also, School 14 is a caring school community. Principal Sherman knows every student by name. The partnership between parents and staff/faculty is great and continuously getting stronger.

#14 is a very good school to send children to. Especially if they need to be in Special Education class. The teachers with experience teaching Autistic children are wonderful. My son has improved greatly since being in this school.You become part of the 'family' at School #14. I will miss everyone when my son Brian graduates from 5th grade in June 2007.

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.
