The teaching staff is wonderful and attentive. The administration on the other hand needs sensitivity training when dealing with issues such as bullying and disabilities.

Administration does not listen to the voices of students and parents, only that of staff members.

Special kudos to Mr. Ryan. A world class teacher and education specialist. An excellent teacher and even a better man. If only NJ, and the rest of the USA had teachers like Mr. Ryan we would be in much better shape.
