This is a safe place to share your honest opinions of a school, whether good or bad.

My daughter is in 5th grade, her teachers are so encouraging. She is now on high honor roll, and really enjoys all the clubs they offer like battle of the books. I am proud of her and grateful to her teachers.
Pros - Very caring & safe environment. School facilities are keep very clean and well maintained - still looks new. Layout of school keeps the big kids nicely separate from little ones. Great school wide initiatives strengthen community. Cons - needs full day kindergarten, strengthened communications with entire township (not just parents), more after- school opportunities, a bonus would be summer programs.
I heard that some parents are saying Pohatcong School is not doing a good job. I was so saddened to hear anyone would say a bad thing about that school or the teachers. All my children still go back to visit. They fondly think of Pohatcong and know they are very fortunate to have gone to such a great and loving school.
Both of our children attended Pohatcong. My husband and I are very proactive when it comes to education. Our son graduated from Rutgers University and our daughter from American University. My son still credits his 1st grade teacher for his love of reading. My daughter says her 7/8 grade teacher has been the standard for all her other teachers. Thank you Pohatcong for giving them such a strong foundation.
