My daughter learned more in her pre-school than in Stony Brook. She was actually ahead of what they were teaching in her class and so she was bored. When we had issues with the school they just turn the other cheek. To this day they make it very difficult for me to attend any school functions and my daughter is suffering because of it.

I went to this school as a child and it was wonderful. My yougest child is attending this school and he comes home everyday telling me he had a great day at school. the teachers are very nice and help a student if they have a problem. the school is great and i recommend this school for many parents.

I attended this school and i thought this might i have the best 4 years of my life. Stony Brook helps a chid when they're having problems such as educational, conflict, at home. This school has loyal and respectful teachers that care for every one of thier students. The school is very clean and enviromental.

Stony brook school does not provide children with adequate resolutions. Instead handling an issue for example a child with a possible behavior dysfunction (adhd) instead tackling and handling and providing that child with the proper tools, they rather dispose of this child and transfer them to another school. Avoiding any attempt to help but to ignore and wash their hands of any wrong doing. Stony brook school has failed many times.

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.
