They play favoritism and they discriminated against our child who is gifted and talented, high 6th grade avg. 98.777 and did not give her earned President's award yet they gave it to others that did not meet the requirements. This was a yearly fight.
WORST SCHOOL! 5th GRADERS SMOKING IN THE LUNCH ROOM! KIDS FAILING AND SENT TO SUMMER SCHOOL ONLY FOR US PARENTS TO BE CHARGED $200.00 TEACHERS GOSSIPING INFRONT OF THE STUDENTS. TEACHERS TALKING DOWN AT KIDS INFRONT OF THE CLASS. WORST THEN ROBERT FULTON. AND KIDS BEING SCARED TO GO TO SCHOOL FOR FEAR OF BEING BULLIED. I PREFER BERGEN COUNTY SCHOOLS ANYDAY BEFORE THE SCHOOLS IN HUDSON COUNTY. THE TEACHERS STEROTYPE AND THE PARENTS ARE NOT TRYING HARD ENOUGH TO TEACH THE KIDS AT HOME OR ARE TOO BUSY WORKING
There should be no wonder why this is doing so poorly. With parents that don't care or don't have a clue, there are teachers that don't care.Thus the students fail. I failed my child by sending him to this school. Last year 50% of the 7th grade class was failing. The administration's explaination? It's the students fault because they are not doing their homework. The administration is failing these kids everyday when they fail to understand and fail to educate our children. These kids grades are inflated by teachers giving additional points to "boost" the kids grades so they avoid failing. The kids will just suffer in the end. It's a sad truth if you have other options do not send you child there.
My daughter is graduating this year. Thank Goodness because she is a straight A, Gifted and Talented Student and the rate this school is going it will be compared to the inner city schools with low test scores. Thank God My daughter was there when the Teachers and Principal really cared. They really need to shape up.
This year 2013-2014 year has been terrible. The new administrators have completely failed these children. There is no diversity among the staff in a district that is mostly Hispanic. The scores are lower than ever and the administration puts sole blame on the children. Not enough textbooks therefore they share class textbooks. 29 minutes for lunch and no recess and cannot leave seats at all. Lockers are broken and bathrooms are disgusting. Overall the school has nothing good. With the exception of maybe a handful of teachers who truly care. There is no principal and the Board of Ed pays no attention to the parents who speak up. In fact they are out right rude when you do attend the meeting to speak up. Huge FAIL!!!
