Posted April 3, 2012

I have children in K and 1 at this school, and so far I am moderately impressed. Since starting at the school this year, both have made adequate gains in both Math and LAL. The Teachers are friendly and knowledgable. Unfortunately, the student population does not appear to have the support of well-educated parents. This directly effects the test scores and the learning environment. While I value the socioeconomic diversity, I understand there is only so much the school can do to combat the effects of poor nutrition, lack of meaningful home education, and economic instability. I plan to keep my children enrolled here, but with the understanding that I must continue to challenge my child in meaningful ways outside of school. They have both made good friends here, and I talk to them daily about not following or joining in any misbehavior. The principal (new, as of this writing) seems to be doing a great job. My children are engaged in the events and activities of the school. Office staff are always helpful. I have observed, however, that the school holds a TON of fundraisers. Plan to spend $20/month on fundraisers. Overall, this is a nice diverse school.

The art program at Silver Run is the best I have ever seen. They study the masters of art while creating unique pieces.

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.
