Both my children attended Tuckerton elementary school until we were forcus to moved due to my husbands job transfering. I loved the school, it was like a private education. My children had one on one help. the classroom sizes are very small. The teachers are loving, caring but firm. The school, teachers and parents are all very involved in the children's lives as well as our local police deptment. They believe in forming a great relationship with the kids while they are young in hopes to help prevent bad behavior later. Love and miss this school. Their expectations from the children are high as it should be. The provide tons of extra help for the students that are in need. Can't say enough good stuff about this school.

TES is a great school. The teachers are nurturing and firm. The class sizes are small and students get individual attention.

I have had children in 3 other school districts and this is by far the best school I have ever sent any of my children to. The biggest shock for me was my first Honor Roll Assembly-I realized there were more children ON the honor roll than weren't. They were all cheering their friends on for gettting good grades. It isn't often you see 5th grade boys high fiving each other for making straight A's. This is what this school is about and does for these children.

I am so happy we are no longer in this school. My children are doing much better. The teachers are great in this school. If you have a child with a IEP this is not the school for you.

I rated this schools 'teacher quality' a 5, because some of the teachers are so amazingly awesome. Obviously, I would trust them to be a positive influence in my child's life. I know first hand because my grandmother,my father and,I were all students there as well, as my daughter.

Exceptional school with very high percentage of teachers with Masters Degrees and some with doctorates. The old principal has been replaced. There is a warmth of community spirit and a wealth of educational opportunities for the children. Most classes have less than 15 children. There are only 2-3 classes per grade. This school is one of NJs finest and best kept secrets.

Tuckerton Elementary was a wonderful experience for my son. One of the reasons we moved to Tuckerton was the school. Coming from a larger district, kids are often lost in the sauce. The lice issue was even more rampant in the larger district along with a lot of other illnesses! My son blossomed under the guide of talented teachers and was prepared for the transition to Pinelands. The town and the school both have a small town feel that I was looking for.

I moved to Tuckerton with the school in mind. I feel the review I just read is ridiculous. It is an outstanding school, with great teachers, and great activities. I have had no problems safety wise, and all the parents chip in. The lice incident was a family in the districts issue, in which the school did all it could to resolve, it has the charm and personality of an old fashion town school. All of the students have great experiences here socially and academically. The sizes of the classes are perfect for one on one teaching, it is not over crowded like near by little egg. The towns restriction on much more building will keep it that way.

My child went to Tuckerton for Kindergarten and then we moved. I am so happy we moved out the Tuckerton school district and would have found a way to transfer my son. I was very unhappy with the safety and security with the school and bus drivers. I was never asked for identification nor was anyone else from my family when picking my child up. I recieved and large number of notes that children in the class had lice and think it is excessive when you recieve more than 2-3 notes in one school year. I think this school needs outside help on how to run a school. The school also needs better administration when it comes to the principal. I had a major problem with the bus and my child was put on it and let off at my home instead of the babysitters house at 5 years old. This is not only a safety issue but a security, which they do not take seriously in my opinion. I hope this helps any parent who needs to send their child there to be more aware.
