Hmm.... I'm inclined to agree with the earlier posts. However, a couple of the old board members recently left -- good luck to them, but they did nothing to improve this school while they were "in charge." Maybe things will get better now that they are gone. Tend to agree with the earlier comment that was made about the best years for this school being the earlier years. Why? They had Alpine as consultants and the focus really was on the children -- not on paying the big bucks to admin...that, and the first board members really knew what they were doing in terms of getting this school off the ground. With the departure of some really bad board members (who were there to feed their own egos and agendas), and new blood on the board, I believe that the school has a decent chance now of getting back on track -- at least I hope so!
I guess you teachers were part of the wave that abandoned the children and the school when there was a change in administration. We are better off without you.
I agree with the previous post about this being a disappointing school. Too much focus is on administration and not enough focus is on the teaching staff. I don't know the school's financial status, but they sure waste lots of money on admin staff that do nothing. All you need is the principal, program director, a secretary, and a teacher for each student...they waste so much paying big salaries to unecessary staff in these tough economic times. Take that money and get some quality teachers! I blame the board, certain people are there only for the glory and not for the school -- they are not governing, they are dictating -- these people should get off!!!
Disappointing. This school use to be one of the top three in Bergen County. Underpaid teachers, overpaid administration (some of which are not needed), aging non-creative board members, bad financial decisions, letting go of the right people and hiring of the wrong people .... all combine to nothing less than an epic tragedy. The first three to five years were their best....poor management by board members ever since has brought this school down far below what it could have been. Needs new management to help guide this school back in the right direction.
