I have worked in education for over a half-century. I work for Kean University at Soehl Middle School in Linden, mentoring student teachers, nine of whom have been hired by Linden in the past three years. I have also been an interim principal at three middle schools in supposedly affluent districts, Soehl's faculty is the best I have ever worked with. They sincerely CARE for their students and render non-stop assistance and encouragement. The school might not be the prettiest or the newest, but , believe me, this staff is superior in teaching skills and far superior to any I have seen in Bridgewater, Plainfield, Elizabeth. Jefferson, and Hanover Township. I have observed and evaluated over 300 teachers, and none can compare at all with the entire staff at Soehl Middle School. You are indeed fortunate if your lovely children attend this school.
my school is soehl middle school it is the best school ever they help you with anything you need it is the cleanest school ever and it is in a great area don't listen to everyone saying to go to Mcmanus they are just a bunch of haters the best school besides the high school in the state of new jersey
I love Soehl. Mrs. Braisted was my daughter's principle at School 1 in Linden and she has made a wonderful transition at Soehl as well. Overall I am completely pleased with the curriculum and the ratio of student to teacher. The children receive one on one instruction and the workload is perfect for retention. I also love their prepatory for state testings. They also keep the parents informed of any current events or matters regarding the school. Regards, Candice Hall Linden, NJ
