Dr.Charles C Polk has wonderful teachers BUT the administration needs help....if I could warn any parents out there looking to move here.....if you have children DO NOT MOVE INTO THIS SCHOOL DISTRICT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I had to fight three years to get my son evaluated and classified. And as far as a school disabled children...forget about it my good friend has a set of twins that one has CP and the other is autistic..........her children are in two separate school but she is lucky because times than not they will bus your disabled child(ren) to another district because they don't have programs to handle the different special needs. Do yourself and your child(ren) a huge favor stay away!!!

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.
