We love the teachers at Quinton School! The communcation between parents & teachers is great. The smaller classroom sizes and presence of classroom aides in the lower grades really makes sure the elementary basics are down solid. The only minus we've encountered is the lack of sufficient discipline towards the "bullies".

This school's administration cares SOLEY for the NJASK scores. They have tailored the curriculum to teach based only on what is questioned on the NJASK tests, rather than what our children need to learn for "life". It's all a numbers game and nothing else. There are teachers that spend two whole weeks reviewing for tests, only to have them be open book. Then if the child still receives a less than satisfactory grade they are given the chance to retake the test. I've seen students that fail to complete the necessary coursework, yet are still being promoted to the next grade level. Students are pressured about state testing, when they should be focusing a general education. These standardized tests are not going to help any child excel through life. The school also has a uniform dress code. However, it is taken to such an extreme, that teachers are spending time each morning asking students if they are dressed properly, and if not, they are then written up and sent to the principal's office. Obvious violations are one thing, however singling out a child for not wearing a belt (especially when they are to wear fitted pants to start with) is a distorted use of power.

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.
