This is my son's second year in this school and I love it! The principal and all the staff are just great, loving people. I could not ask for a better school. I transfered my son out of a charter school and put him in this school and this school is way better then the charter school. I wish this school went up to the 12th grade. LOL

My daughter has attended 14th Ave for the past two years and will be attending 3rd grade there again this year. While her first year there as a first grader was an extraordinary experience, Ms. Denchi was a phenomenal teacher, I was less than please with her 2nd grade experience. Despite making every effort to be an involved parent as I had been in the previous year, sadly, I felt unwelcomed. Communication was minimal and often late. Academically, my daughter was not challenged at all. There was little to no consistency in her homework assignments. I am hopeful that things will improve this year but if they do not, I will follow suit and place my child into a charter school, like so many other parents did last year.

I have to say fourteenth ave is an excellent school. 2 Of my children have graduted from there after being there from k-4 and i have one that is graduating this year. I would like to thank all the staff at the school for the years spent educating my children. We need more schools out there like fourteenth ave. Keep up the good work.

Fourteenth Ave School teachers are great! The two draw backs are that there are no after school programs and there is a lack of school security. But the school is a big plus overall with it's teaching methods. The principal, Mrs. Barillari, is the back bone of this great school.

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.
