My son is in the 3rd grade and he has an excellent teacher. She is very dedicated and put in extra effort to prepare the children for NJ ASK. The school encourages kids to perform better, I also liked the NJ ASK workshop for parents.
My son is going to this school for last 2 years and I think this school is doing great. I am not sure how this school is rated 5 out of 10 in this web site. I feel this should be rated atleast 8+. I got no complaints on this school except few minor items. I would like to have the teachers show little more attention on kids about what they are talking in the class room and caffeteria. I feel they seem to pick bad words from other kids.
The principal, Mr. Baskerville, is really doing a great job. The building is looking better and student test scores are increasing.
My daughter is in the 1st grade and I am very happy with her teacher and the staff there.
My Daughter is in 1st Grade at Grandview, and I help out in the class when I can. I want to say that I am nothing more than pleased with the education my child is receiving at this school since Kindergarten. Her teacher, Miss Quadrino is attentive, bright, and wants nothing more than to see her kids in the class do there very best!!! I am proud to say that my Daughter goes to Grandview. The score I give Grandview is a 10!!
My granddaughter attends and they do many extra curricular activities for the kids.
Grandview School is the best school. The teachers are kind, Principal is wonderful and my child is very happy there.His teachers take interest in him and I am sure on other kids too.. I love it since they treat everyone well.
My child attended Grandview last year. Since,we have relocated to another state. My child had the greatest teacher there for first grade. I have to say he is one of the best! Mr. Orasco, thank you for being one of the greatest teachers I have ever met and one that my child simply loved. He did an awesome job with the entire class. If you are a new parent and have him for a teacher, lucky you! He is simply the best!
We moved to another state, and there are great things about the new school my son is in, however, my son received a wonderful compliment from his 'new' teacher, and I owe his abilities to his teachers at Grandview. His new teacher told me that ' he is the one of the best writers, if not the best writer, in her class, and he is always willing to answer in class.' Thank you Grandview for giving him a good foundation!!!!
I also don't understand how this rating was generated. The school is only K-3 so maybe since only the 3rd graders get tested, there isn't enough data???? When I compare the test scores here to those of other schools with more grades, just looking at their 3rd graders, they are on par with schools that have Great Schools ratings of 7.
The rating soemtime make me wonder as to how it is done. The Grandview school in Piscataway is one the best Schools . As a mother of a special education kid, I am so pleased with my son's growth here. He has a wonderful set of teachers , his main teacher, the aide and the Special ed teacher are great.They are caring and ensure that children try their best. The principal is warm and caring and the atmosphere of the School itself is more welcoming. I recommend this School whole heartedly.
My granddaughter attends Grandview School. She is int the second grade. She had Ms. Kendall last year and struggled somewhat in class. She is now in Ms. Tranchina's class and seems to enjoy school much more. she is trying harder this year.
MyDaughter studie din Grandview in Kintergarten last year.Her Teacher Mrs.Jordon was excellent.Within 3 months my duaghter started writing pargraphs of 4 lines in KG. Also she gave special attention to every student and gave the students advance materails for them to improve.
I transfer my son from Private school to Grandview on 2007 and I can't complain with the school and the teachers. Matter fact he was so behind in all the subjects and the teachers at Grandview help him to overcome a lot. I'm very happy with the school in general.
I am a parent of 2 children who attend this school. I think the principal is very insincere and it is obvious that she does not have a good working relationship with the teachers.
I am a parent with a child in Special Education and my son has improved a lot since then. All the people that are involved in my son's education are doing a good job with him. If other people feel that there is not much parent participation, then parents should make the step to be involved and the school is not stopping anyone from doing so. Let the teachers do their job, everyone that I've met so far has been great.
A new principal was hired in 2006. There are many qualified teachers but the new principal needs to work on her social skills when dealing with parents and children. I wish the school had better security. There are no locks on the door which means that anyone can walk into the school at any time.
I have 2 children who attend Grandview school and I am very pleased with what they have learned throughout the year. The teaching staff are experienced and the principal is someone who really cares about the children and the school. I couldn't send my children to a better school. If anyone is thinking about moving to the area this is a great school. You would not be disappointed.
