Beware of the Custodian at this School. Spanish with the initals ER. He is known as a thief that steals from the school. Steals from the children what they acidentally leave behind, phones, jewlery, money. He should not be around children.

I am more than happy to transfer my elder son to this school from a private. The study team and the involvement of teacher is wonderful.

I love the teachers and staff at Memorial. As the parent of two elementary students, one with significant cognitive disabilities, I communicate closely with the teachers, child study team members and principal. All of them have taken ownership of my kids' educations, and we are all proud of their accomplishments. I would highly recommend Memorial to people looking to buy in the EB area.

Teachers in general don't correct a student's writing no matter in exams, homework, and classwork. Teachers will need to do more in order to improve young students' writing skill.

The school has a very involved, caring & smart principal, highly qualified caring & attentive teachers, a gifted program, & a full-time nurse. Although the class sizes are large, the teachers have quickly gotten to know our kids' individual strengths & weaknesses & worked to capitalize on & address those. Locally Memorial & Warnsdorfer are considered the 2 best elementary schools. As corporate relos from out of state, we extensively researched school districts before we picked a town, & I think we choose very well.

Wow! What a great learning environment! My child had a wonderful start to her education at Memorial School. She was happy to go each day. We appreciate everything the school did for her. The staff really works together to enhance the learning for all children. We were particularly impressed with the Kindergarten teacher.

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.
