We have two children at Zane North and have been tremendously impressed with the level of commitment and dedication of the faculty and staff. In particular, Mr. Santo is the most energetic, caring and involved principal I've come across. He and his team consistently go above and beyond, teaching our children both academics and values.

I think Zane North is a fantastic school. My son is currently in the fifth grade, and has been attending Zane North since the first. I have found the teachers to be very competent and caring, and the principal, Mr. Santo, to be the kind of principal we all wished we had when we were growing up. Their programs are creative and stimulating, and everything about the school is positive and enriching, for both the children and parents. I feel very fortunate that my son was able to receive his elementary school education from such a terrific group of caring and dedicated individuals.

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.
