My son just completed the third grade at Bullock, and my wife and I are very pleased with the education my son has gotten there. So pleased that we are looking forward to our daughter beginning the first grade at Bullock this coming fall (2014). Our son's teachers were excellent: they balanced well between providing an effective structure conducive to learning and an openness to letting our son be the kind of learner he is. With our involvement in his learning throughout all three grades, and our partnership with his teachers, our son is reading and performing math at the 6th grade level.

Both of my boys went to and surpassed most academically at THIS school! I am astounded that others feel so misguided or uninformed. :( As far as the parental involvement, as a parent I was only concerned with my involvement.

This review is in correspondence to the first comment about the teachers are so focused on behavior management and lack teaching skills. First off, the state is the one who sets the standards on focusing on behavior management skills. In order to run a successful classroom there must be a good structure which all in all comes down to behavior management. If the teachers lacked these skills than there would be utter chaos in the classroom and no student would be able to get an education. Secondly, not all of the teachers lack teaching skills. Yes, I will agree that some are not the brightest bulb in the house and I'm not quite sure why they were hired, however, there are a few who know how to teach and have dedicated their whole lives to bettering and educating your children. Instead of criticizing you should be praising the fact that they

The teachers are a joke. Yes I have been there and have observed the teachers. They are so focused on behavior management and lack teaching skills. This school is horrible and anyone who thinks otherwise is kidding themselves.

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.
