My child who is an average student who has always been 'proficient' in both Math and Writing, is now in 7th grade, and still struggling with reading and writing. Hopefully they have revamped their archaic, ineffective and inconsistent Reading/Writing curriculum. I have had to spend a lot of money on tutors for skills that should've been learned in earlier years. When I made mention of this to the administrators they blew it off, so I was left to start the tutoring in 4th grade. If more parents didn't settle for grades, rather than education, this wouldn't be the norm.

My son loves this school. He has straight A's, works hard, plays hard. This has always been the top rated school in town for a reason.

I attended Cedar Grove and both my children, sorry too see that both my kids will no longer be in this school for the '08 '09 year. They are both now going into 7th and 6th grade. This school is so personable , great teachers and staff, nice programs available for all ages. I really felt that this was a more close -comfortable type school. Not congested and overfilled like most regular public schools around.

Cedar Grove is a terrific school. We had three of our children there at one point. This summer we moved to another state so sadly our two children who were still at Cedar Grove had to transfer. Caring, concerned teachers and a top academic program led by competent administrators were the hallmarks of Cedar Grove. The children who move into the area within the boundaries of Cedar Grove are fortunate indeed.

What a wonderful school! We just moved to a new home in this area over the summer and our two children were registered for Cedar Grove. Both the principal and assistant were so welcoming and caring. We are so pleased with our children's teachers. You can tell that they both love their work. The academics are rigorous, yet the children are carefully taught for understanding. I am very impressed by the math program the school uses. There are many special prgrams for the children and a great playground and outdoor atmosphere.

Cedat Grove has such a warm inviting atmosphere. The teachers are caring and eager to help the students learn. The Principal and Supervisor are easily approachable and very supportive to staff and students. It is by far one of the best experiences I have had in an elementary school.

I have two children in this school and have been very happy to have them there. This is a school with a top academic program and kind and caring people from the principal on down. I was totally surprised by the one comment stating that the administrators are not well suited for the young ones. I have never heard anyone say this before and do not feel that it is at all true.

Cedar grove is good as far as academics is concerned. Unfortunately, the principal and vice principal do not belong in an elementary school. They need to be in charge of young adults, for the simple fact that they do not know how to interact with children. As for the teachers, so far, the ones my child has had were not that bad. My next child will definitely be going to a different school... Unfortunately my child and i had to learn this the hard way.
