The teachers are good. the office staff is very unfriendly...such a turn off, they should represent the school better. the bussing is terrible, kindergarten should not be on the same busses as 8'th graders. also the pick up procedure at school is awful, if you wish to pick up your child. you must walk a long distance to the front door. the sidewalk is dangerously close to a busy road. you the must wait in a line to sighn your child out. no one is checking to see that you are who you state to be...therefor defeating the purpose of the whole thing...alot to be improved opon.

We are very disappointed that the school does not have full day kindergarten or before school care. Currently the after school care program is in jeopardy, as well. To compound the difficulty for working parents, the district has an extremely strict transportation (busing) policy that does not allow for transportation to an alternate care giver. The school administration is known as 'cold'. In contrast, we have had a wonderful experience with the teachers we have encountered.

About these ratings

The test results by subgroup show how the designated group of students is performing in comparison to the general population.

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.
