We moved out of Hamilton and my daughter is now attending a new school. I was just informed that her reading and writing comprehension issues which the teachers/child study team at Kisthardt always just blamed on her speech issues was actually an academic issue that she should have been receiving support for . Compared to kids here she is on a 3rd grade level in this area & she keeps telling teachers, "I never learned that at my old school."

Kisthardt school is a school where all the teachers know all the children and all the parents. It is a nice feeling to know your child is not just a number.

this school is excellent. the academics, specials, student resource programs and staff are wonderful. my son attended this school from kindergarten through half of first grade, until we moved to florida, and in that short time i had much contact with the administration and staff in every area. i was very sorry to be leaving the school.

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.
