Small school in a relatively small school district that houses 3rd through 5th grades. There are some excellent teachers in this school but there is very little extra curricular activities or clubs offered. Curriculum, like many others, is based on Common Core and the standardized testing is made a priority.

I believe that this school is one of the finest in the state. We moved from a nearby town so that our children could attend this school. We are proud of their teachers and students! My son is in special education and they have been wonderful in helping us along the way.

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.
