Not impressed by the principle at all! If you have an issue and try to speak with him, he pushes the parent off to the assistant principle. The assistant principle is absolutely wonderful and very friendly. Too bad he can't be principle. My other concern is NOT one staff member monitors the children's safety when school let's out. Maybe once a week the principle will stand outside. The principle needs to be more involve and get to know the students better.

I love this school. They are hands on and very family oriented. The principal and vice principal are never hiding in the office. They are outside in the mornings and afternoons willing to lend a hand. GREAT SCHOOL!

Erial has great teachers and a wonderful school nurse. My son graduates 5th grade this year and he has had a great experience. This school also has alot of parent participation which makes for a nice environment.

Erial school is great! The teachers are caring and understanding. The school is constantly trying to help the children do the best they can! This school is only one of the many schools in this district that strive to make sure all the children learn and do their best! The principal even knows children by name!

I am stunned that Erial Elementary School does not have a playground and outdoor facilities for the kids. All the taxes we pay, it is an outrage that the children do not get the chance to enjoy an outside play area with swings and a working basketball court!

I have a 4th grader at Erial. She has done well in areas that come easy to her. However, I find that her weakness is Math. She was place in Basic Skills for math ONLY after I demanded. But was taken after one year because she got a B on her report card. I often find that the children are not pushed to reach their full potential. I think they are taught just enough to pass the state test. However, I know Erial could not compete academically with the better schools.

Up until 4th grade last year, we've had good success with the teachers and administration. We do not care for the current Principal. A new school year begins and we hope the school will flourish with the new teachers and new Vice Principal.

I have had 3 children pass through here. I have always been happy with Erial, up until we received the new principal. It seems like there isn't much discipline going on. Walking down the hallways is like walking into a zoo at times.

I have a child going into 3rd and 1 that just graduated. This is a wonderful learning enviornment with teachers who care. Only 1 teacher so far that I didn't care for.

New Principal is doing an average job. The teachers are excellent.The discipline is OK but needs to be more Proactive,not Reactive. The school still remains a Good place for learning .

We just moved to the Erial Section of New Jersey a few Months ago. My Daughter was extremely nervous to attend a new school. The Staff & Children at Erial Elementary made that transition easy. I couldn't have asked for a better school. I love what the school has to offer, from clubs to all kinds of extracurricular activities. I hope the Parents & Teachers work hard to keep this a great school.

My son went here a few years back and the staff was great. They were a big help working with him in the special areas he needed help. Now he's in regular classes.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted August 22, 2003

I think this is an excellent school. They really seem to care. It's not like some schools that your child is just there. If they think there is a problem they will notify you and help to resolve it. My son was found to have a learning disability. He now gets A's and B's.

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.
