This nurturing and educationally sound school has a great community feel. There is a high level of parent involvement and the teachers and staff are current and caring. I cannot imagine a better place to send a young child to feel completely safe and confident.

This past year 2005 - 2006 has not been a good one for my children. They did not want to go to school. When I spoke with the administration, I got nothing positive - just...well tell them they have to go to school! My children never had a problem wanting to go to school before this year. I am not sure why, the teacher seems nice, but I never receive any information from anyone about anything. I work with both my children at home. They seem to get more academics from me than they do from the school.

The overall atmosphere of this school is wonderful. There is a real feeling of love and concern for the children from everyone, from the teachers to the principal. Mr. Fox,the principal has created a warm, caring and open environment for my children, indeed for everyone. The children are involved and are very happy. I have been delighted with everything about the school, the staff, the principal, and the teaching.

Wonderful elementry school-parents are very involved in classroom activities and are seen in the classrooms on a daily basis. Active PTO and polite and very bright studentbody. A very special place to attend k-3rd grade. A wonderful Eureka afterschool enrichment program and many functions for the families to attend. They do not have before or afterschool care as this site implies.

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.
