Robert Treat Academy provides an excellent academic environment for your child to learn grow and thrive. My son just finished his Kindergarten year at the central campus and has grown by leaps and bounds during this time. The curriculum is challenging and rigorous, but pushes students to excel. My husband and I are both grateful for the friendly living staff and school culture. We would definitely recommend this school.

My daughters attend Robert Treat Academy in Newark, NJ. What I think others should know is the willingness of the Staff and Teachers to help our child achieve greatness. The teachers do not hesitate to give extra help when needed. They always keep the lines of communication open and work together with parents.

This school is great for educational learning, lots of homework, and classwork to challenge the minds of are youth. As I do see a lot of parents talking about physical activities, we need to remember that IVY League schools are known for there educational programs, and not physical programs. When you apply for the lottery, you notice there is no real area to do physical activities, so I really don't know why people would complain about this. It's a free education that you would not get in the Newark Public School System, so I don't see what's the problem. There are many that would love to take those places of the people who are complaining about this school. Remember that!

RTA is a good school but is lacking in social and physical activities for students. The ASK test and good grades are torturing kids to succeed and they have no time to anything else. 11 months of school is also TOO much, besides that I am happy with RTA.

As a parent of 2 students at RTA I am happy about the academic school but I completely disagree with Saturday classes and mediation class and the kids have no time to be a KId. if you concerning putting your kids there pay attention to the RULES of the school. They can't socialize with their pears and they have no time for anything not related to school. I am a frustrated parent and I feel sorry for my kids and as soon as I have a chance Ill move out of Newark and look for another school. Unfortunately the good grades is a priority in order to get more funds for the school and the children pay a high price in keeping that up.

I am happy with the level of education at the school. I think they need more activities for the kids (after care) and more breaks during the long day. Trips to the playground they built can't hurt either. The kids need a balance in the day of learning and release of energy. In my opinion they focus too much on test scores sometimes to the detriment of the students.

I love Robert Treat Academy School, because it gives my daughter an excellent education espcecially coming from a city that our children score well below average in the state test because of poverty. Robert Treat excells in teaching our children that are our future. Because of the well educated teachers and principal and the staff involvement in our childrens future, the kids and the scores of our state test are our proof of what Robert Treat Academy School has accomplished.

I am a student of the Rober Treat Academy. I have not been at the school fro long; only since second grade and I'm in eight now. This school has given me so many options for the future. The teachers and staff there are amazing and really know what they are doing. The school overall is great. Many students complain this school is too much but that's good. They are preparing us for the future. When I go off to high school and college I will look back and thank the Academy for all the options they've given me. This school is my second home and everyone there is my second family. I have every right to be extremly proud of my school. I'm glad I was one of the lucky ones to be accepted to the Academy.

I must admit that the school's mission is admirable and noble. In the beginning the school focused mainly on the students and the teachers were absolutely marvelous. Not not, things have changed a great deal latel and things are not the same. Things are not always as they semmm.

Robert Treat Academy is a school in which it's main focus is to score high on the tests. I feel as though these children also need to work on their social skills. There are barely any physical activities for them to do and when they have the opportunity to do so, (lunch) they are seated as if they were in jail! Communication with one another is also a key to success not just scores!


Posted March 30, 2007

I'm a proud parent supporter of the Robert Treat Academy. My daughter has attended the school since Kindergarten and she loves to wake up early and go to school. (These children even go to school on Saturdays) That's dedication!!! The teachers are excellent. My favorite is Mrs. Romer and Mrs. Tiffener and Mr.Fein, they have done a wonderful job with the 6th graders this year. My daughter has build a strong foundation of knowledge and a fountain of good study habits that will help her accomplish her goals in becoming an Obstetrician through the efforts of the Robert Treat Academy!!! A special thank you to Lydia, Jessy and Cynthia.

My daughter has been blessed by being in RTA. I feel she is very lucky to be experiencing the quality of all programs. RTA is great, but is lacking in fun time for the children at lunch time. All our kids need that free time, by either going out or even playing in the gym. Brains function better after a little play time.

I applause RTA for all the teaching efforts, excellent test scores and of course for being the first one in the state. However, I have to agree with the rest..... Your curriculum offers no physical activities.... These kids are becoming the new RTA couch potatoes with a lot knowlege, though! RTA does not offer green spaces for these kids to be themselves for at least a half of hour.... To make matter worst the little space available its being converted to a music room!. These kids are getting bored and angry, please do something.... Give these kids more freedom with their schedules! Let them dress down on fridays as they would like to do and of course more physical education would do it too.

Scale: % at or above proficient

About the tests


In 2012-2013 New Jersey used the New Jersey Biology Competency Test (NJBCT) to assess students in Biology. The New Jersey Biology Competency Test (NJBCT) is standards-based, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of New Jersey. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the test.

The different student groups are identified by the New Jersey Department of Education. If there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

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.
