This school hands down has been the worse school my children have attended. We moved here from out of state and when I compare the form of teaching and the dedication that is given to these children, I can honestly say its sickening. This school and most of the other schools in this town are surrounded by politics and its about the teachers not the students. If a child is not reaching his or her full potential there is little effort given to get the child to where he or she needs to be. The majority of the teachers are nasty and have poor attitudes towards the children. My children can not wait to leave this school. I would not recommend this town for schools. If you are looking for a school district consider Woodland Park. There schools are great! They treat their kids with respect and actually care about their progress.

My son goes to this school. He's in 2nd grade and has been there since kindergarten. I think this school is really great. Most of the teachers are really knowledgeable and really want the children to do well. The new principle is wonderful. She really communicates with parents and tries to encourage parent involvement. The school has a good art program as well as music and gym. There is also a reading specialist that comes in to the class once or twice a week to help make sure all the kids are up to par. And if your child has autism or ADHD or another issue, the school does a great job at facilitating a program to cater to that child without just dumping them into special education. The town of Garfield has many extracurricular activities through either little league or YMCA and the sign up information for them is provided from the school. I also like their after school program for childcare. The counselors make sure the kids do their homework and that they also have play and snack time.

James Madison School #10 is very small but the teacher's have a great way of explaining things.My child learns easier know in this school then in the previous school.The school does have art,music,gym etc.But, the only extracurricular activities I've heard of are this afterschool program that the students help other teachers and this P.E.A.K program.

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.
