AMAZING! WONDERFUL! EXCELLENT! What else can I say? We moved here years ago for the school. My children are still enrolled and I am more than happy with the quality of education they are getting. As someone who has a post graduate degree education is extremely important to me. My children are in excellent hands and the teachers are the most dedicated, friendly, caring, staff I could ask for.

Logan Elementary School has snobs for teachers who take their "careers" as elementary school employees far too seriously. The teachers act as though they are the highest ranking members of society, choosing favorites while making excuses for their indiscretions against parents and students. Former gym teachers with no experience and poorattitude get lost and find their ways into the administrative offices at this school. Both the administration and teaching faculty need a reality check. Now onto the education offered at Logan township. Their classes may be competitive with average south jersey schools; however, the school should prepare children for ivy leagues rather than community colleges. Encourage the students to take AP courses in high school, not just regular ones. Also, the writing program is terrible. Something should be done to improve children's' skills to communicate and identify grammatical errors. Overall the school is a hyped up version of common N.J.Schools

One of the reasons my husband and I moved to Logan 18 years ago was because of the school district. We've had 3 children in the school system and have had a positive experience with each child. The teaching staff has to be one of the best. The teachers create a wonderful learning environment and take a true interest in each child.

There are not many good things I can say about this school. The majority of the teachers and administration play favorites and if you are not one of their "chosen" ones, you're basically screwed. I'm not sure what they base their favoritism on; it has nothing to do with getting get good grades or if you are pleasant in class. On more than one occasion I have been very disappointed with the way the administration has dealt with a situation. They feel their image is more important than the well-being of their students.

To say I am completely satisfied with this school system is not enough. I love Logan Twp. schools. They are second to none. I will never move from Logan Twp. The teachers communication with parents is great. Any problems that have occurred at school with my children have always been addressed in a very appropriate manner. They reallt encourage parents to participate in the kids activities if they are able but are not obligated to do so. I really like that I have that opportunity. We came from another school system and it did not compare. There was little parent participation, very minimal communication, and the teachers just didnt seem like they enjoyed their jobs. In Logan they really seem to love their jobs and the children. They make my children feel special. My children are both above average in learning. I have to say thank you to the teachers.

We love this school -- the administration and teachers are excellent! We've had opportunities to move elsewhere but could never bring ourselves to leave the school system. If you haven't visited our area, do so!

I have no complaints about this school, teachers are in constant contact with parents via email, class room phones, and letters home. they have an emergency system set up that automatically calls your phone numbers(home,cell,work) should an emergcy closing occur for any reason. The staff keeps parents involve in all activities and asks for parental volunteers all the time. You are incouraged to be involved but when you can not be, you are not obligated and you are assured your child will not be left behind. I would not move from this school district ever. Any issue I have ever had has always been addressed in a timley and professional manner in which I was satisfied with. The staff here really cares about our children.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
