Grant Elementary School is a wonderful School, my daughter went in needing a lot of help and came along way in a short period of time, with the Teachers help.It seems to me that the Teachers and staff care about the children.Were very happy and thankful with Grant School.

Grant school is the best over all school in ridgefield park. I was previously in the 6th grade there and every single morning you got treated with the respect you deserve. For example, everyone always says good morning. I miss it so much but I still strongly suggest that you should send your child there.

My child went to Grant School for kindergarten and was constantly harassed by Mrs. Romba. My child was at a higher level than the others (Not a prodigy, just slightly ahead) and was bored because while others were learning to read my child could read pretty well. Mrs Romba did not challenge my child with higher level material so my child continued to be bored and started talking to others (Worst offense), she, in-turn, sent my child to the Principals office. When I spoke to her and said my child was gifted she said that my child was "not gifted". Well, my child is no longer in Grant school and is in Gifted and Talented at the present school. Have your kids go to Roosevelt school. Its much better.

My son goes in this school in Kindergarten and at this time he and my family is quite happy overall. Its a small school but fits perfectly with the village style living which is only 10 miles from Manhattan, NYC - busiest city in the world :) - hence love it.

Mrs. Beeman, a second grade teacher, is a teacher 'above the class'. Her organization, motivation and interest in teaching is unique and has a positive impact on children.

The Village of Ridgefield Park has come such a long way. They are currently #1 in the state with the 4th grade assessments. The Superintendent, Vice Superintendent as well as the Board members, Teachers, Principals have all contributed their knowledge of teaching to the students to achieve great success. A Great big thank you to all who have taught our children the means to become a successful member of society that will benefit their lifetime as well as the others who surround them. The Academic programs have benefited our children greatly. The principal has and follows her open door policy. This makes us feel as if we are a big part of the school. Grant school feels like home which is where the HEART is! Congratulations and thank you to all.

Ms. Spina, the third Grade teacher, is an excellent teacher. I can see the changes in my son's attitude in his study and towards the school. Excellent job.

Quality education is not provided at Grant School. Partially because the parents of the students in this school don't care about the education in which the children are receiving. Parents need to stop looking at school as 'child care' and focus on quality education. The teachers get paid well, but there doesn't seem to be any pressure to produce.

I would not consider sending my child back to this school. Some of the teachers are nice, young, and good. However the quality of education is poor. If they kept the good teachers there may be a difference.

In my opinion this school is the best. Mr.Onorato is a fantastic Principal.This man truly and deeply cares for each and everyone of his students. No matter the weather he is out there every morning to greet them, and at 3:00 he is out there to send them on their way. He is always available to parents, and their needs. The teachers are as wonderful. I feel very safe and I am proud my child attends this school.
