Overall, it is a great school. The Principal is not the most well-liked, but the faculty and staff are generally wonderful. Some teachers are better than others, so it helps to find out which teacher is best for your child depending upon their abilities. The community is great, lots of parents volunteer for either school or borough committees. Most families are friendly.

I just started my son at this school and the amount of people who care and are welcoming, both staff and parents, is very overwhelming. I was nurvous moving my son to a new school but this just feels completely perfect. I feel that the staff goes out of there way to take care of the parents and students.

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.
