IEF has an amazing and talented staff of very dedicated teachers. The children benefit from a very personal and nurturing approach. The school and grounds are also beautiful and well maintained.

One of the best experiences my children have had is the school they attended. All the teachers are dedicated and all the therapists are willing to work with you. They were fully prepared to attend Middle School and socially appropriate on target with peers and respect.

Dedicated principal and excellent teachers. It is good to hold spelling bee contest every year to encourage students to learn English well. The slogans about the six pillars of characters and the characters of a good citizen are good for educating students. Could anyone send me an introduction of Irene E. Feldkircner? I think the school is named after him.

This school is great. The principal is VERY dedicated and the teachers are wonderful! The school offers so much to the students... even in Kindergarten. For instance the K students partake in physical ed. Most elementary schools don't have a real PE program for that age group. As a matter of fact, the school recently got recognized by the White House for their excellent PE program. My daughter is in Kindergarten and is enjoying the Glee Club, the after school science enrichment programs, and after school sports. The classroom is equipped with a smart board, which is more interactive than the traditional black board. They had a grandparent's day and parents day and my husband and I really enjoyed being in her classroom getting a feel of what her day is like. The parents are involved, they have a strong PTO but they are not pushy or over the top. The school offers diversity and doesn't tolerate bullying. I can't speak enough about the school. Coming from the Montessori background I find the curriculum diverse although it could be a bit more challenging for my daughter. Her teacher is very open to suggestions and communication among parent and teacher is fantastic

My son is receiving a challenging, yet nurturing educational experience at IEF! The teachers are innovative and creative. The school continually performs in the high 90's national percentage wise.

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.
