Jackson Avenue Elementary was not the school for my son at all. He attended from K- 2nd grade...The reason he made to 2nd is because of my financial situation otherwise he would have been transferred out 5 months into Kindegarten. The teachers are gossipy and could careless about my child's education. I was very involved too bad they were not.

My son has just started at this school and is in kindergaren. The teachers are great and my son loves the school. He has done so well that he's prepared to go into the first grade already. They have started the early morning program again for parents that work early!. I would recommend that if you have a child, and have a chance to have them attend this school. I'm sure you will not be disappointed.

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.
