It is a good school if you want to compromise. The teachers and parents are immuned to all the flaws including trobuled kids and in appropriate use of language by kids in presence of teachers and parents. The parents have to take responsibility to keep track of progress if not the kid is totally ignored. No strong curriculum, No strong characters , No strong staff. A good school overall, without any shining moments. Good luck.
Academics are weak at this school. There are some fabulous teachers but the great ones have been told to dumb down their curriculum. The principal is mercurial and condescending. Plan to spend a LOT of time working with your child on additional learning activities to keep up with peers in other Monmouth County towns. Very bright children will be bored out of their little minds.
