I really love this school. The teachers and the staff are amazing!!! The quality you get in the teachers can be compared to private schools. My first child went to private school ,and I feel that my child in public school is getting a better education.

I love the school. My son started last year as a Kindergartener, now he is in 1st grade. He adores his teachers. They recognized that he was more advanced and were willing to give him individualized attention and work. They were very attentive and creative. My son really feels that he's a part of the Arleth family.

In 2004 Arleth might have been a good school, but since they got a new Principal it has gone way down hill. Most new teachers are straight out of college with little or no experience. They need to start teaching to learn again instead of focusing on State testing. Parents are not as involved as they used to be due to low moral. Extracurricular activities are limited and mostly involve State testing exercises.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 New Jersey used the New Jersey Assessment of Skills and Knowledge (NJ ASK) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in language arts literacy and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in science. The NJ ASK is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New Jersey. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.

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.
