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!
Our First Grader is reading, writing, and doing math at higher than grade level and we are impressed with her progress this year. Compliments to school and staff for producing great results in student satisfaction and performance. Proud Grandparents Mike and Gayle Engle
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.
