It is a outstanding school with an excellent staff. They go beyond the call of duty. They have resources to help your child and they will use everything in their power to help your child success.

My son has attended Lenape Meadows for two years now, and it is a wonderful eductational institution. The facility is new, and the teachers are engaged and enthusiastic. Parents are involved, and the superintendent is involved in local issues that effect the school system. My son loves the school, and he is learning a TON. I'll tell you, he knows more than I did at his age, and I was a perfect student early on. There is alot of homework, and some may say too much, but once the kids get adjusted from K, they adapt well. I give all these positive remarks despite the fact that we had a 'teacher conference' to address some behavioral issues. But we nipped it early and it worked well. Gneerally speaking, mahwah parents care about education, and it shows in this school.

Lenape Meadows School is a first class, customer-friendly, primary grade learning environment that prides itself on progressive curriuculum design and delivery. My children have had exceptional experiences at all grade levels. The staff is truly focused on meeting the needs of the 'whole' child, and teams well with parents to promote the cognitive, emotional, and social growth of all children. There is direct evidence in the school's classrooms of high quality professional practice as literature studies, project/problem-based learning, research, problem-solving, and thought-provoking writing activities are the norm (all within the thoughtful, challenging, supportive, and creative framework!). I beleive that the school environment reflects an awareness and sensitivity to learning styles, multiple intelligences, brain research, and the art of differentiating instruction. Kudos to all at Lenape Meadows!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 New Jersey used the New Jersey Assessment of Skills and Knowledge (NJ ASK) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in language arts literacy and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in science. 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. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.

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.
