Under the leadership of Ms.Slattery, the principal and Guidance counselor, Nurse, Secretariies, and Parent co-ordinators, Madison Ave. School has the best staff you can find anywhere. from Kindergarten to 5th Grade teachers and para-professionals.Each student is taught individually as well as collectively in as a class, because the staff makes it happens. More parent involvement will help students strive better in their studies. A great school to attend..

Dear Mrs. Simo, Your students should be very proud of their recent exhibit at the New Jersey Historical Society in Newark. They did a fabulous job. It brought back many fond memories for everyone who attended. But, where were the representatives from the Board of Education? Donata Zappulla IHS Class of '68 St Paul the Apostle Class of '64
