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.
