I have two children who attend Wallace. The teachers are wonderful and caring. The new Math and language arts program is wonderful and challenging. I also love that they offer a gifted and talented program, Johns Hopkins program, opportunities to be part of the Chorus, Junior band, PTO run enrichment program. Very impressed with the school and how my children are performing.

Summer Chaos in Wallace!!! With lack of leadership children are been tossed around from classroom to classroom, teacher to teacher, like greens on a salad. Why the school bother to have move up day and then throw it out the window. Totally disappointed. Test scores this year were low again!! below national average... hint, hint! This is a major red flag. The school needs help!!!

Wallace is a great school. The staff cares a lot about the students. There are programs available. Parents are encouraged to be involved with their child's school. The PTO is the best. They go above and beyond for the children. There was no other school I thought about sending my kids to.

Wallace is a dynamic school that caters to the needs of the students. The teachers went above and beyond to ensure that my two children would be successful. They offer fun after school clubs and camps, many of the teachers offer tutoring, and the front office staff are like extended family.

The school has many great teachers and puts many resources into helping children with varying learning competencies. There is a lot of parent inclusion and the administration is very proactive about communicating with parents and caregivers.

Wallace is in major turnaround. The current Principal was permitted to 'clean house' now has a teaching staff comprised mostly of young, enthusiastic teachers. Educated professionals with kids in Hoboken increasingly want to stay: the private schools in town are ok, but there's no Dalton, the Charters get uneven reviews and Wallace has begun attracting a 'new crowd.' My child is in accelerated reading and math, and is thriving socially and academically. Teachers encourage communication with parents, I've always had their email addresses.

Hoboken Schools have been in a crisis for decades. This current principal was the Principal at the Hoboken High School and Middle School. Each school has performed below avg. in all areas. The town itself is thriving. The present administration has done a disservice to the communtiy and much too much importance has been placed on Football as the Redwings are consistantly #1 in their division - for this the adminstration is Most proud.

Wallace follows a traditional curriculum focusing on reading (including phonics), math, writing, spelling, science. Extras include art, music, computer, Spanish. The teachers are exceptional - smart, well-trained, caring and nurturing. The students wear uniforms, take weekly spelling tests, follow the rules. My kids love it and have excelled since kindergarten.

This school has a great idea of keeping the children safe and the standards of their learning, but you give a 8 year old massive of homework and tell them that they're going to get retained. I really don't think that's the appropriate way of encouraging your students. So on my overall look of the school this one teacher has discourage me a whole lot.
