Posted June 20, 2014

I have been teaching over a decade at this school and am shocked and disheartened by the June 10th comment. I live 30 minutes away, across the street from an elementary school, and still there is no place I'd rather go every morning than to Roberto Clemente. I truly love the students, parents, and community- their hardworking and supportive attitudes. We have an open door policy for parents, and I do hope this parent will take advantage of that and revisit the school, as often as necessary, to feel comfortable having her daughter here. As a parent myself, I know there's not much worse than not feeling that your child is being cared for in the best way possible.

This school is one of the worst. I have witnessed teachers yell at the kids and tell them to shut up and I have witnessed teachers scream at the children to the point the some of them cry. I have complained to the principle and the board of education but they do nothing at all. They don't care about the kids and it shows. The staff seem like miserable people who take out their frustrations on the children. My daughter goes to this school and one of her teachers got an ear full from me because my daughter over heard her complimenting another teachers behind. They do what they want and the principle does not care.

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.
