My child has a lag in the learning and the child study team as well as the regular teaching staff, the principal, and the support staff have been very helpful since the IEP was put into place. It can be difficult when there is a transition from one administration to another, but this year has been fabulous for my child and the leaps and bounds in progress are due largely to the team effort put forth by the entire team. My child's older sibling is in high honors at the middle school thanks to the education received at FMB. I have been impressed with the responsiveness and the dedication of the staff. Coming from a district with far higher taxes (Old Bridge Twp.), I feel that Andover Twp makes good use of my tax dollars and is providing my children with an excellent foundation. I'm sweating the high school issue. I wish Andover was K-12.

Horrible school - hasn't had good leadership or academics in two years - there's always a new face and there is a huge lack of consistency... are our taxes that low compared to Frankford, Fredon, Green Twp, Hardyston and Hamburg???? Theses are just a few of the many Sussex County elementary schools that rate much higher academically than FMB. Big disappointment!

I have one child through and two in FMB now...I love the school and the staff. From my experience, most if not all of the teachers are very good with the children and they offer wonderful extracurricular activities. I am also impressed with the level of teaching offered in their music, art and language arts programs. I would recommend this school very highly!
