As far as I can see the teachers in the 3rd grade are very un-professional. Always have an attitude and make the children feel so scared they do not want to go back. My grandson has never had any problem with any of his teachers until he came to Number 3 School. If a teacher choses to teach it should be because they enjoy their job and they want to help children creat a future. I do not appreciate that my grandson comes home telling me he gets corrected in front of all his classmates, making him feel stupid (using his words). I have worked around different age groups and their teachers are caring, understanding when a child is having trouble adjusting, firm but not threatning to the point the children gets so nerves they throw up. Third grade teacher should be observed a little more.

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.
