Excellent school. I have two kids in this school and am extremely happy with the education they are providing.

The school is a decent school. The teachers seem to be very caring. As a resident of Fairfield, I am happy with the school. The town of Fairfield itself doesn't offer much. A pretty generic town that doesn't carry much prestige. The town and schools support the community with the flooding that continues to plague the township.

The school provides ample educational opportunituy for children in grades k-3 and allows for parent participation at many levels.

I think Fairfield schools are amazing!! From the teachers to the superintendent...Everyone is great. Those of us who have children in the school system are extremely fortunate. The school is a well oiled machine. Everyone cares about all the children and the children receive a phenominal education. As a parent I have no complaints. I can not imagine a better school system is out there. My child loves school. Everyone and everything there is truly amazing.

Fairfield Schools are the best! Dr. Kildow is an amazing superintendent and our district is lucky to have her!

We just moved here and started Adlai. My son adjusted well, the school seems on course with the reading level, homework and teaching for 2nd grade. I would love it if they had the uniform policy as they do down south. It really does lower the behavioral problems, such as bullying and boasting. The town of Fairfield is great!! Lots of things going on - the library is right next to the Rec park - many sports & arts to keep your kids busy! We've been welcomed very nicely. Over all - love it!

I think the teachers are fantastic. My child has had a great learning experience here. However, the school can't seem to find a good principal. We have had four in four years. Not satisfied with the one that is currently there. Evenually, they have to get it right. Also, there is absolutly no extraurricular activities--not even extra help. It is not in the teacher's contract, from what I hear! My child happpens to be a good student so I don't know what they have available for children who need help.

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.
