I can't say enough wonderful things about this school. My 3rd grades has special needs and she is being treated wonderfully! Everyone is so kind and understanding! Love the staff and the school!

It has a wonderful welcoming environment and the people are interested in your child. I reminds me of my elementary school, its like going home again.

This is one of the good schools that my children have attended. Academics are satisfactory , but I am not impressed with the quality of plays that are performed or the sports or lack of sport opportunities at Cranberry Pines. There are no extracurricular activities to speak of except brownies and girl scouts. Level of parent involvement is adequate.

This is my 2nd child in CP and it is worth the high taxes. The teachers are great, willing to work with you. The art classes are comprehensive, the media center is fab & there are so many parents willing to volunteer, they have to turn people away. I do think that the parental involvement is a big plus. The principal is vary fair & that secretary - she won't have to ask you your name twice! She is amazing. I am very pleased with the education my child is receiving.

Excellent teachers willing to spend extra time with their students. Parents are obviously part of the success here and are involved. All students are encouraged and supported by the staff to excel.

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.
