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.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.

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.
