Excellent school system. Well experienced teachers and an able Principal. The school has a full day Kindergarten and Pre-K for 4 year old. Has ample extra circular activities and special classes. Instill a positive attitude for kids and also teaches the value of working hard.

I have 2 kids attending this school, one in grade one and the other in pre-K. The school has excellent academic programs including reading, writing, and science, as well as social and outdoors activities. Teachers introduced disciplines through warm and friendly manners, creating an excellent enrionment for kids to learn and grow. My both kids love their classmates, teachers, and the school.

I've had two children attend this school. As with many schools, educational quality really depends upon the specific teacher. My kids have had some great teachers here, and some not so great ones. I believe that the school has fared worse under its new principal, who lacks leadership ability compared with the former principal, Ms. Worman. The facilities of the school are mediocre, at best, which is surprising given the very high local property taxes. For these reasons, I give the school an overall 'average' rating--it's an adequate place to send your kids, but isn't anything special. On the bright side, once your kids progress to 3rd grade, the Patrick Villano school is much better.
