Extremly dissapointed on the organization skills that this school has and the lack of interest in the educational area as far as after school activities and programs.

very disapointed. I attended Elizabeth public schools and felt I received a good education. I was a defender of the Elizabeth public school system until my child attended one. If you don't value structure send you child to school # 3. They mean well but are very unorganized.

Success For All program does not meet the needs of our children.No one listens... total waste of funds!

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.
