I don't understand why this school is rated so low. My daughter who is 18 now, son 14, and 2 other sons currently attending had great teachers. My one son has ADHD and all they have done is help me come up with ideas on how to help my son not getting frustrated and focusing more. Mrs. Herman who recently retired was awesome and I'm sure the school will continue to strive for excellence. If more parents are involved with the school and teachers, I'm sure the rating will go up. I know many parents have crazy work schedules, but some participation from the parents is always a plus. I hope more and more parents can come on this site and speak highly of this school.

My children have attended this school from Pre-K thru 4 th grade and the caring and instructional quality of this school is wonderful. My children enjoy school and wake up happy everyday knowing they will be attending East end Elementary.

I have a child attending East End School and she has had excellent teachers. The teachers are caring and attentive to the children's needs and make very effort to communicate with the parents. My child's teachers have all been thoughful and take time to really assess what is best when deciding next steps for her academic progress. East End has a core group of very involved parents that make time for events and projects with the children and we hope others will join us. Together all of our children succeed!

Why are all the good teachers leaving? E. E. is definitely not what it used to be. The daily communication among students would be rated an R on any given day. Stronger disciplinary action should be taken at school and home.

My son attended 1 through 4th grades. We found all his teachers, without exception, to be dedicated, hardworking and made extra efforts to communicate with us and help him move forward. He was in special education all 4 years and we were pleased with those services as well.

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.
