I think there are many terrific things going on here. My only complaint is that not one single teacher I have encountered is knowledgeable about the grade-level standards (not just the new ones this year - they did not know NJCCCS, either). Too often they are trying to teach beyond the level at which they teach, when they haven't even gotten close to mastery on grade-level standards. Other than that, they are all amazing, involved teachers, who genuinely care for their students. The principal is approachable and friendly. To complain about parking is silly. It has nothing to do with the education of our children.

This school has excellent,caring and devoted teachers & staff. The only negative is poor parking facilities. Excellent cooperation from parents and home & school assoc.

I have never in my life met a public school principal so involved and approachable. So refreshing! Looks like she is trying to make lemonade out of lemons though. But, don't tell her that! The school really needs some help!

Except very inconvenient parking , I see the school does it's best it can. They need more focus on G&T for advanced kids.

The school is very behind in what it is teaching. The other schools around are more advanced and they need to come around to the times. The teachers just give busy work instead of having the kids interact and learn each subject. Parking is terrible.

I feel the school is doing great in educational and support to students in all ways. I see Teachers and the principal is the excellent resource for this school. Only disadvantage of school is inadequate parking place. Of course, there will be some advantages and disadvantages in everything we see.

I could go on and on about this school and what it is lacking. I won't because I don't have enough space. I will agree with the parents before me, this school needs work all around. They have the parent support (which a lot of schools don't), so it falls back to the school district to get this school up to par for this day and age. From the looks of it unless the school gets a 'Rich Uncle' we will be in the dark ages for some time.

The teachers are nice, but the school needs work. They don't deal well with special needs, the school is too small, parking is completely inadquate, and the school generally needs updates on just about everything.
