Ridiculous! Not what it used to be! It was a great school but unfortunately has been quickly becoming an unsafe environment for children. Has a great curriculum, many great teachers (sounds good right?) but a horrible staff and PTA that sit around lazily eating and flirting as if the entire building was some type of lounge. A loud, unorganized, unstructured environment. Multiple buildings adds to this. God do they try, but the quality of the parents and some staff have put my child in dangerous positions. It's supposedly a "zero-tolerance" school, but violence has been allowed time and time again with the same bullies, now the parents are the problem. Just in two months time there has been at least two lock-downs in the school because of violent parents and a robbery. Us parents were not notified of todays lock down, these parents were allowed in the classroom and started getting violent and aggressive towards all of the children and yelling profanities to the point where the police were called and a parent was arrested, but no call or notice was sent home. My child is traumatized! Parents put trust in the school with our children and this is what this school allows!

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.
