All my kids went to this school, its a great school .all the teachers really care
—Submitted by a parent


Posted April 5, 2014

This is a community based school where the children are motivated to learn. The teachers are invested in each child (individually) and the results are apparent.

I adore this school and wouldn't want my kids anywhere else. The principal is nothing like the ones I had growing up. He is warm and genuinely shows respect and care for each child. He looks for as many ways possible to make learning a fun event. The PTA keeps the school high tech and holds many events for the kids and families. It truly is "a little school with a big heart".

A wonderful school with many caring and devoted teachers. I've had 1 child graduate and have two currently attending. Great parent participation excellent after school activities and a wonderful principal who remembers every student and calls them by name. A small school with a lot of heart.

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.
