My son attends this school through the New Jresey Choice program. The Principal and her staff are doing a great job! The school is bright and welcoming which are condusive to a childs learning. I am so happy that my child was chosen to attend.
With the no child left behind act in place, it seems like the activities just recently became challenging for students, unfortunately the teachers lacked the proper training to follow through with the new curriculum. My daughter attended the school and learned what she needed to learn but was extremely frustrated with all the yelling that went on during class. I've personally witnessed teachers and the principal excessively yelling at the children. The teacher also lacked proper communication skills and was unable to identify issues within a reasonable time to come up with an action plan to address those issues. The after school programs where engaging and included some parent involvement.
