Profile Completeness


Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

School # 1 is one of the best schools in the area...6 of 10 does not reflect the true success of the school. Students are challenged to the highest academic levels by amazing professional top quality educator. If state assessment are your criteria for success, school # 1 also meets this standard with above state average results on state assessments. School # 1 in Paterson is a model school that shows the true potential of the children in Paterson when parents are involved, teachers are allowed to teach and students are held responsible for their learning.

this school is well run. There is a mandatory uniform code which is great so there is no competition on clothing. the teachers are strict but compassionate. the principal means business, cares but does not put up with anything. There is enough homework by the grades so noone is overloaded. there are plenty of meetings and activities for parents to be involved. Help is offered to those that need it and no one is put down for needing help. I would recommend this school to anyone in the area. It stands for dignity, unity and respect and the children learn that and bring it home and show through their assemblies.
