This school has not passed the States Yearly Progress Report in THREE years! The classes are too large and the parents have to volunteer so much because there would be no funding or activites without them! The teachers are remote and distant adn not that willing to help. The guidance counselor at this school is useless. Manalapan used to have a better reputation, but now the schools are suffering and the administration cares about the budget. The superintendent in a power hungry, inept fool who loves to call himself "DOCTOR". There are better districts and private schools in the area.

I've sent 2 children through the ranks at Milford Brook School and each one had a fabulous experience. I absolutely believe that experience was enriched by the involvement of my entire family in the many activities offered by Milford Brook School. For the most part, I found my girl's teachers to be passionate, knowledgeable and excited about teaching. The administration was there for me and quick to address any of my concerns. One of my daughter's had special needs. With that, I found the support system at Milford to be top notch.

This school is lacking in so many areas. The classes are so large - there is little or no individual attention given to the students. In first grade, they don't even get to read everyday. If your child has any special needs, forget it. The social worker is extremely unwilling to help. Look elsewhere if your child requires any special services. The whole school is very political and all they care about are state test scores and teacher reviews.

Milford Brook has an excellent staff of teachers. This is an 8 star rated school system where many parents volunteer to help out with all kinds of fun educational programs. The kids are smart and respectful with the drive and dedication to come to school and give it their best everyday.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 New Jersey used the New Jersey Assessment of Skills and Knowledge (NJ ASK) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in language arts literacy and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in science. 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.
