We got laptops, great. They gave each student a thousand dollar Macbook Pro. (That's where our tax dollars went, to excessively expensive laptops.) Initially, it was a good idea. But it's too expensive. Especially since most students use them for gaming. But because we have laptops, they REMOVED ALL THE BOOKS FROM OUR SCHOOL LIBRARY! So sure, we can research, and play games, and they supply us with books we read in class, but god forbid we READ FOR FUN.

I'm just a resident that watches anothers kids due to her Work schedule. This is the worst school system I've ever seen. The teachers just let their kids walk out if they say they don;t like school and there's kids walking all over town at 10am

The education aspect is great, the teachers know what they're doing and if the kids apply themselves they have a great advantage. But that school needs to be fixed up pronto. There are too many kids in there now for such a small school. Enough trailers! Build on.

Although my daughter is doing much better in this school as far as her grades are concerned. In the one year she has been there she has been taken out of IEP and unclassified. Mind you the previous school district she was in had her in IEP for about 4 years with no improvement. I must say the one thing I despise is the racial tension at this school. I have brought it up with the principle and all I got is they handle it on a case to case basis. I feel with that particular situation there is no case by case racism is racism and should have a stern disciplinary action no matter how light or severe one person may think it is. my daughter is involved in extracurricular activities and also opens all games at the school singing the national anthem. The school also needs renovation.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 New Jersey used the High School Proficiency Assessment (HSPA) to test students in grade 11 in language arts literacy and math. The HSPA 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. Students are required to pass the HSPA in order to graduate. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
