Both of my kids graduated from School #1 and my old one is already in college. I am so please with the education they received. The teacher are passionate about what they are doing and care about the students deeply. Their G & T program is excellent too, and really prepare the second one to be the top students at high school.

School # 1 is the best school. the principal is the an excellent leader, all teachers are excellent, and Ms. Grossman is the best teacher. I think that this school should be listed 10 our of 10. Arthur mom.

The school under the new principal is definitely more proactive and better organized, she shows leadership and experience. However, the public system is somewhat behind comparing to other private schools in the area. This is a mainstream school that serves well to the average student

I sent my kid to the school from last year. We are very disappointed with its teaching mathods and the passion of the teacher to work closely with students parent. We contacted the teacher of my kid's class several times and tried to communicate with her about progress of our kid, she was reluctant to communicate and did nothing to cooperate with us. we are shocked with the situation.

School #1 is a typical suburban school, a bit mediocre for Bergen but likely marginally better than the other ES in Ft. Lee. The music program sometimes needs to be held out in the hall, and the school has had physical maintenance issues. Teachers are a bit mediocre, but are at least dedicated. The principal is a bright woman, but will likely retire within a few years. The whole district has suffered from a few years of mismanagement, from minor gaffes to egregious infractions. This may change with the new superintendent, as the last was simply abominable.

It has truly been a priviledge sending my 2 kids to School Number 1. The teachers and staff there provide consistant support to the students and academically, my kids are doing great. The school environment is safe and comfortable and I guarantee that any parent wanting to send their kids to this school will be satisfied and will recognize success in their childrens' education.
