Sea Girt Elementary School 2

Clearly, the last review of this school was written by an administrator. Anyone who knows what has transpired in the Sea Girt School over the last two-plus years knows things have taken a sharp turn for the worse. School climate is HORRIBLE. Just ask any faculty member or parent. Parents are now very unwelcome in the school. Anyone thinking of moving to the district for the school should do their homework. Also for the THIRD time in FIVE years, the school is once again turning over its child study team. We went from shared services with Manasquan and Spring Lake to the resignation, just this week, of the current in-house director of special ed. Taxpayers and parents and prospective homeowners should take note of what is going on in the district and board of education members need to get their heads out of the sand. Very sad what has happened.

It depends on the grade since the school only has one class per grade, it depends on the year and "who you get."

While the school may develop honesty and integrity in its students through the faculty, it certainly does not do so by example of the school administration.

SGES provides an amazing learning experience for our children in an inclusive and technologically advanced environment. The administration and teachers know every student and their families and provide a unique learning plan for each student. It also has a great tuition program at a very reasonable fee.

Again, value and behavioral programs are a core part of the curriculum. The school is just adopting the Restorative Behavior approach throughout all of the classrooms.

Development of values and culture has always been a key pillar in the SGES curriculum. Attend any assembly or school meeting and you will see some of the best behaved and courteous students in the country.

Sea Girt Elementary provides our children an amazing learning atmosphere with exceptional teachers. The class sizes are very small and the community involvement at all levels is extraordinary. We couldn't ask for a better place for our children to prepare themselves for academic excellence and the school is one of the main reasons we chose to live in Sea Girt.

Buyers Beware! Sea Girt Elementary School, once known for its academic excellence, has become mediocre at best.. Many neighboring districts continue to surpass Sea Girt in all academic areas. Read http://education.state.nj.us/pr/ report carefully. The administration,( Superintendent/principal, Business Admin. & Board of Ed.) Is an organization inclined to conceal the data. They will not disclose information regarding lawsuits, legal costs, and Special Ed issues. The lack of an accelerated curriculum proves particularly deficient, as Sea Girt does not have a high admission rate into the highly competitive vocational schools. Class size is on the smaller side which fosters exclusion & bullying. Enrollment has decreased due to the poor administration. Many fine tenure teachers have left and the administration has chosen not to conduct exit interviews.

Parents and prospective families: please note that to get a "10 out of 10" rating on the Great Schools website, the school administration populated data for student growth and test scores, but significantly omitted the third data point: the school s college readiness score ... which is a significant data point where Sea Girt School fails to perform. College readiness reflects the number of students who take Algebra by 8th grade. When SG's college readiness data is factored into the overall Great Schools rating, SG is not the "10 out of 10" school it pretends to be. The fact that this data point was omitted reflects what has been noted in another reviewer s comments (see below): that the administration routinely cherry picks school data to make the school appear on paper better than it actually is!
