My daughter just finished her first year at Craig, and it has been amazing. She is a happy girl that has learned to read and has been given strategies to help her write and organize. I'm so grateful for this school, the teachers and the warm community.

I visited the school as an option for my child with a language based learning disability and found the school to be very "wild" in the hallways and the kids to be very "spaced out" in the classrooms. The kids seem to be a lot lower functioning than the school advertises.

This school improved my reading and writing skills by two grade levels in only and short amount of time. I would highly recommend this school to everybody who is trying to get an individualised aprouched to learning. The hole school is just a big family and all the teachers and students new my name, even on the first day of school my teachers and dean knew my name witch surprised me.

I find it ironic that the parent of a learning disabled student at this school would be so insensitive about "these children" (read: "students on the autism spectrum"). As the Craig School knows (and apparently the previous poster does not), Language Based Learning Disabilities often go hand in hand with HF ASD. As for my student, she was described as "spectrummy" and diagnosed Aspergers until she was old enough for professionals to really tease out her issues. Non-Verbal Learning Disability and Dyslexia to some, Aspergers and Dyslexia diagnosis from others. The Craig School admits children they feel can be helped by their program, and if an ASD child has co-morbid dyslexia or other LBLD then they have as much right to Craig School's wonderful program than a child with "classic Dyslexia and ADHD". Do not blindly categorize and exclude children with learning disabilities who can be helped at the Craig School, as it has been a wonderful experience and immense help for my "difficult to categorize" child.

My child graduated from The Craig School, after spending the 5th through 8th grades there. For the most part, we were very impressed with the school. Our child has learning challenges, due to dyslexia and ADHD. The student/teacher ratio and teaching methodology were the perfect fit for our child. However, in the last two years, the school started admitting children who did not fall under the same criteria as relayed their mission statement. More than one of the new students was on the autism spectrum. These children had no difficulties learning. In fact they excelled, rather than struggled. Sadly some of the other children were intimidated, when they could not keep up. It's a great school, but has lost sight of its mission. I would still highly recommend Craig. Our child made leaps and bounds there and will be attending our local public high school. We never would have dreamed that would be possible.

My son started 5th grade at Craig in September, its now January and he has made huge academic steps forward. He is happier than he has been in years, excited about learning, and enjoying every day. This school has changed his life. The teachers are patient, kind, and dedicated, they have the technology and support they need to teach, and the kids are happy, kind and respectful of each other. I can't say enough good things about this school.

Had one child attend this school. It made a huge difference in the child's life. Child is now attending college and on the Dean's List for two years running. Always believe in the success of your child especially when you find the right school with the right teachers and the proper teaching methods. Thank you!

My son had struggled with his learning disability unsuccessfully in the public school system. We tried everything to help, tutors, special ed classes etc. He had lost his self esteem and was not interested in going to school. He is a very bright child that happens to be dyslexic, exactly the profile The Craig School is designed to teach. What a wonderful school, Mrs. Cozine the Director, Mr. Furlong, all the teachers and staff at the school have deicated their careers to helping these wonderful bright children to succeed. Since being in the Craig School our son has returned to the boy we thought we lost. If I could rate the Craig School it would be a 10+++++++++

My son just completed his first year at The Craig School - 3rd grade. We love the school. There are not enough positive things to say about this school. My son is so happy and has grown and learned so much in one year it's unbelievable. It's nice to have your son say Mom I want to go to school instead of wanting to stay home. From Ms. Cozine the Principal to Mr. Furlong and every teacher - if you child has learning disabilities and is not making it in public school - take a look at craig. my son could read in september - he can read and read probably close to his level in one year. The confidence and self-esteem he as built up within himself is unbelievable - thank you craig school.

The Craig School is a wonderful school with intelligent children with learning differences such as dyslexia, add and adhd. They build self esteem and teach your child to compensate for his/her disability. The school offers a great sports program, social programs and is one of the best kept secrets in N.J.
