Posted May 13, 2014

I was very worried about my son attending this school. He was very anxious to go to a new school by himself. After attending Central for K-2, my son didn't want to go to a new school. The first few weeks, he remained anxious, but with the help of his wonderful teacher and the other supportive staff, he was able to adjust and now he loves his school. His teacher, Mrs. W. is very kind and is very patient. She encourages my son to do his best and we both love her teaching methods. The staff tells me that my son always looks so happy to be at school.

GMRSD is poorly funded and needs much improvement. Look elsewhere if deciding to move to Great Meadows, unless you homeschool or attend a Private school, in that case, it's affordable to live here and there is lots to do.

I have a 3rd grade boy and he is now at Liberty due to the realignment. I was worried about him adjusting etc. but it all went so smoothly. I have no complaints and am very pleased with the teachers/staff etc.

Smaller classes, personalized attention, good staff...I just moved into the area and found that my child quickly adapted to the environment & that the staff quickly addressed any of my concerns. (The kids love Mr. Carroll, 1st grade teacher, it was an honor to have my child attend his class this past year)

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.
