Exceptional staff and school! My son is in 3rd grade and each year has had a fantastic teacher and wonderful learning experience. If there are any issues the staff are responsive and the situation is immediately rectified. Most importantly, you get a sense that the staff and teachers truly do care about their students which makes all the difference between a good school and an exceptional one.

This is a wonderful school!! I children have been part of this school for 4 years now and it has been a great experience! The teachers are caring & patient. The staff is very helpful. There are many opportunities for involvement in the school. Academically, the teachers are always challenging my children to achieve their best. As a Mom I would definitely recommend this school.

This school has been a disappointment. It is in a district where, on average, kids are from well educated families and can perform at a higher level. For the most part the scores are good because the parents push their kids to do better--not because the school provides adequate challenge. Its overcrowded. The teachers only notice the kids and parents who draw the most attention (positive or negative) to themselves. My child is capable but shy and obedient, which means that she was completely under the radar usually. She preferred to be left alone and most teachers were only too happy to do that. Also, good extracurricular activities are available to fifth graders and kids in the advanced classes.

This is a great school. There are so many academic programs available for students. My daughter is always involved and the parents collaborate together to be involved with the school. The teachers are highly qualified. My daughter's reading levels really improved greatly. I totally recommend for anyone to send their child to this school. You will be very satisfied.

I am quite disappointed with Marlboro Elementary School. My children were educated well by some of the teachers, yet there were others that should have retired years ago.They promote a 'kind Kid' atmosphere, however the teachers can repeatedly be heard being unkind. The principal has a very limited ability to understand problems that arise, and has difficulty prioritizing issues appropriately-he too needs to remember to act kindly.

This is an amazing school! My kids love everything about it. My children have been going to Marlboro Elementary School for many years. I, as a parent also think this is a great school. The teachers and all staff are wonderful. I appreciate all they have done for my kids.

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.
