When your children go to Edward H. Bryan School, you not only are a part of the school, but of the community! Parents, teachers, and staff care about the students in every respect. It is a small community with lots of love and dedication to all. I truly like the fact the the staff and principal knows all the student's names. It's amazing!! I don't know how they do it. It is an excellent school!

Although the school has struggled with overcrowding in the past few years the administreation has done a fairly good job of compensating to keep the negative effects to a minimum. The teaching staff is good and works hard to continually stay current with new teaching methods, programs and ways to enrich the learning experience. One minor negative is the schools method of communication to parents and students. Many times the notices do not make it home in time or do not come home at all. I believe that they are working on correcting that with a more up to date web site. Another positive is a very involved PTA who works tirelessly to ensure that the students get additional exposure to cultural, educational and recreational events or programs.

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.
