majority of classes have 2+ teachers and that doesn't work all the time also, special ed services are a newer issue to holmdel and they don't know how to balance the classroom work, etc... we feel they have a tendency to gear the work towards special ed instead of individual goals.

Indian Hill is a wonderful school. They prioritize safety and academics which are the two most important components in any public school. The staff at Indian Hill are incredibly thoughtful, hard-working and well mannered. I would highly recommend this school to any family looking for a top level education.

About the tests

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.
