I had two children that attended this school and during the time we were there of the 5 different teachers they had only one stood out as good. Their approach is archaic and unimaginative. The teacher attitudes are disinterested at best. There is a bias against boys and a quickness to have anyone not meeting a certain standard diagnosed as ADHD. I found the school to be too large with too many children and classrooms and the principle inadequate. Thank GOD we were able to move and get our kids into a much better program.

My Kids go to this school and I must say the Principal ... Asistant Principal and the administration are as unhelpful as they get. The teachers and Principal are eager to have any kid who doesn't conform to their idea of perfect student labeled as ADHD. The teachers are also not very motivated... which is kind of expected seeing the leadership they have. I have heard the school was way better under leadership of previous Principal. Sadly the current Principal and the management of school are a big disappointment. I would move my kids from this school if I had an option in a heartbeat.

This school has a higher score now only because of the growing Asian population in town. The principal is not interested in your child problems and push ADHD diagnoses for any child that doesn't fall on their "standards". She was way too busy chatting with the staff to pay attention to the school and the students issues. We had an awful experience with a teacher who screamed all the time at her classroom and left our child frustrated. Fortunately we found a very nice private school where our gifted child feels respected now. The bad thing is that we still have to pay the high taxes and are not able to make use of the school district.

Great teachers and very caring staff members. Our child was always very eager to go to school due to caring/friendly nature of the teachers and always very eager to learn.

Wow it's been like 4 years since i have been to this school. It is an okay school. Some of the teachers and students are a little mean. There is no air conditioning in some places. The Principal is very nice and welcoming. The Special Ed department is horrible. I was there from kindergarden to 2nd grade. If you come here I advise you not to go to PRMS go to a different Middle school

This is a great school! They have a great reading and math program. My son has learned so much from the teacher here, they really try to challenge the students by giving them work that is at their level or above it.

Overall we are satisfied with the school's standards, safety, cirriculum and very pleased with its extracurricular offers. I'd give the extracurricular's a 4.5, as they offer weekly spanish, computer, art and music in addition to special reading and math programs. If they offered music lessons, as they do in Hopewell, I would raise the score extracurricular score to a 5.0. Like any school some teachers are better than others. Overall, I think they are well qualified and do their best to create positive environments for their students. My biggest concern is with the Sharon's new administration. They don't show enough leadership and have disappointed in enforcing policies on bullying behavior.

The school is good if you have a normal child. They are not equipped to handle children who have specific learning needs. The special ed department is horrible!

I have been very pleased with the follow through on the part of my son's Kindergarten teacher. Mrs. Z communicates with me about my child in a way that helps us to make good decisions about his education and growth as a person.

This school has a very caring and supportive environment. The principal and her administrative staff are capable and involved. We have had two great teachers in 2nd and now 3rd grade, and our son feels very involved in his school. He is very comfortable and happy learning there. We are very lucky to have moved to a town with such a great teacher/student ratio and one of the best school systems in the state. We moved from West Windsor, and it is a breath of fresh air to have our son in a school system where administrators, teachers, and students all know him. The difference between these great school systems is that our above average but not AP children in West Windsor fell through the 'cracks' in a system that caters to the high achiever. Sharon school has taken our son and set him up to excel. We are so happy.

In general the teachers are caring and put in the extra effort for the children. I question the administrators though. Politics and budgets seem to override education which makes it difficult for the teachers to do what they need to do for all students. If your child catches on quickly then you will not have any issues but beware if your child actually needs to be taught!

My daughter learned so much at this school. She had an oustanding teacher, Ms. Dobbin. But the teacher quality and friendliness from the principal almost make up for that. The only other complaint is that only 2 parents can participate in the activites of the classroom (room moms). I would like to be more involved with the classroom. I think all moms should be able to participate more.
