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.

The staff at South Street School are very involved with our kids. They have such great educators here. We didnt even know about this school until it was time for my daughter to go to kindergarten because the schools nearby were overcrowded. However, Im happy that they were. Lastly, Security staff is excellent! They go above and beyond what is necessary to help our kids. They are very committed. Knowing that our kids are in good hands when dropping them off to school makes our day at work less stressful. This school has an open door policy and whenever you need to speak to an administrator there is no wait time, they provide care and support immediately. I love this school! South Street School is the best kept secret in the district!

The building is very old. Do not have any extra-curricular activities or programs. Have very good teachers, but not all. Admininstration does not care about discipline or bullying. I do not know what she is talking about character teaching....... Parent involvement is close to zero. Its the worst school in Ironbound. That school needs help. By the way, on raining or snowing days children have to be outside getting wet and soak.

My girl went in this school last year. The building is really old and there are no good teachers ! Her graduation cerimony was a messy! There aren't place to sit, and I couldn't even take a picture of her.
