We have been happy with the teachers at this school - but there are other issues here that concern us. Therefore, the lower rating.

I don't care what numbers are assigned to the district based on scores...I LOVE CRS! The staff and parents go above and beyond to enrich the children's learning experience. 2 of my 3 kids go there (one in 3rd, the other in 1st), and they are excelling and loving school. My youngest will be there next year!

My two children have been going to Conerly Road School since Pre-K. One is about to enter the 4th grade and one is about to enter 3rd grade. We moved into a larger home in town just to keep my children in this school until they both complete the 4th grade. We LOVE the school, the teachers, the principal and the diversity that the school offers. Everyone at the school tries to make a difference. The entire staff at Conerly Road School works hard for our children. I highly recommend this school!!!

CRS is a great school! My son has been here since kindergarten and will be in 3rd grade this fall. So far all the teachers he's had are great teachers!

The principal is receptive and responsive to the parents. The teachers respond to efforts made to contact them quickly and efficiently I am quite pleased with the way tis school is run. My daughter is in 1st grade at CRS.

Conerly Road School is the best! The Principal, Mrs. Donna Silva-Burnett, is great and very involved with the kids and families and really cares about the children and the school. The teachers, staff, and kids are all the best as well. This is our first year at Conerly and we're so glad we were able to become part of the Conerly Road School (CRS) family.

This is a fairly small school which is well run. The office is very attentive to my needs as a parent. The principal (William Grippo) isn't as engaged as I'd like him to me. The teachers seem to care about their students.

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.
