Monmouth Junction Elementry school is by far the greatest school, The teachers are wonderful, they care about the students and there well being. The quality of teachers are outstanding, I have seen such great progress every year. My children are excited each day to be in school. The lovely staff in the main office are always welcoming, and are always helpful and always in a great mood. The Pricipal is one of the best i've seen, so kind to the children, takes the time to listen, laugh and enjoy them.

As a former teacher at MJ Elementary, I can say from experience that the quailty of the teachers is high and that the school is not afraid to let teachers go if they fail to meet the high standards that are expected. The building is old, especially when compared to the newer schools within the district, but it is still a great environment. There are numerous academic support programs in place and the needs of the students are the top priority. IF you are a parent who likes to be involved in the classroom, this is the school for you! There are a number of programs, particulary literacy initiatives that are completely staffed by volunteer parents.

About the tests

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.
