BASIC

Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

Our rating is a 3 out of 10? Below average. Last year we spent $19,000 a child and got a 3? Plus, we had a big increase in our school tax that we couldn't vote on. If you're planning to move here or send your child to school here, I hope you have big pockets. Clearly a system run for the teachers.

I had Mr.Crawford for 6th Grade,and he was the greatest teacher I`ve ever had.No other teacher can ever top him.I`m 23 now,But I have some awesome memories of his class.He really cared about all his students,and he made learning fun.Bass River was a good school,and it left me with fond memories.

*Continued from previous post* It was just a horrible experience overall. My third grade teacher, Mrs. Wallas, was one of the nicest teachers that I've ever had, and it felt like she really cared about her students. That's probably the only good thing that I can say about this school. My sister went there long before I did, and she had a bad experience with this school as well. My advice to you would be to take your child to a different school, and don't even humor the thought of taking your child to Bass River Elementary.

Being someone who is a senior in Pinelands High School and a graduate from Bass River, it is one of the best schools out there. It may be tiny but all the teachers are so involved and it really is the best place to spend a childhood. Mr. Crawford, an old 6th grade teacher, was the best. He really topped off the experience there. I wish I could go back.

My son is in the first grade, He is doing great in reading and in math. He had an excellent kindergarden teacher who is one of the reasons for his excellence in reading.This year in 1st grade is turning out to be fantastic as well.This school offers many benefits to help with basic skills as well as challenge students to be the best they can. I have had 2 girls graduate from this school who also had this awesome experience. Hooray for small schools. There is nothing like it.

My son is in the prek program right now. He loves it. He is learn many different things from writing his name to signing different songs. the teachers in the school are all very nice and are very involved in making the kids love to learn. the class sizes are small allowing the teachers more 1 on 1 time.Great job for a small school.
