Horrendous School Environment!!! Being intelligent is frowned upon because the teachers or administration has NO more challenging option for any of the students. The kids are all stuck-up rich kids who think they are God's gift because their parents own a cadillac. Not only does discrimination exist here, it thrives! If you aren't wearing the best clothes or shoes, your forever outcasted from the student body. I have been bullied in my Randolph experience in both Shongum and RMS, but the teachers do nothing about it. Parents may be involved, but all they do is gossip about the other moms who aren't "helping". Teachers and Subs are of the lowest quality I have ever experienced, some don't even speak fluent ENGLISH!!! Take it from me, At whatever cost, DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD TO RANDOLPH AND HAVE THEM SUFFER FOR 3 YEARS AND HIGH SCHOOL

my current sixth grader is having a stellar experience at RMS. Great teachers, great students, great community! Thank you RMS!

I pulled both of my kids because of the bullying that goes on. It happens on the buses, it happens in the stair wells, it happens in the cafeterias and no one does much. I think this bullying is a family problem and the school is pretty much helpless unless they adopt and enforce a no bullying policy. As far as I can tell, it's in name only and that's not good enough. The teachers my kids had were, by and large, really great. That is not the problem.

Both of my sons have gone to the Randolph Middle School. My younger son is in the 7th grade right now. They have both received quality education, supportive teachers, and have transitioned well from the elementary school to middle. Randolph is a large town with a small town feel. Most important, our children are happy to be a part of this fantastic community......great schools, great parks, great families!!!

RMS has caring and wonderful teachers. The TeacherEase program is incredible. As a parent, I can monitor my child's progress on a daily basis to ensure their success at school.

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.
