I love this school!!!!! I went there for kindergarten, first, and second I was heart broken having to leave all my "mennies many friends" . This is the best school ever. Although now I am in 6th grade I miss that school with all my heart and wish I could come visit. I had a lot of memories in mennies like my class having a part in my teacher Ms. Cheli's proposal and learn with my Spanish teacher Senor Howard (still have his cd). I will never ever forget mennies and it will always have a special place in my heart. Love u forever mennies :) <3

I have 2 children in this school and the teachers are awesome. They genuinely care about how your child is doing, as long as the parents show they care too. Ms. Sue in the morning always greats your kids with a smile and their after school clubs are educational and fun. Keep up the good work Mennies!

I moved my children and myself to Vineland NJ after living in Brooklyn NY. When my son was enrolled as a 3rd grader I was a bit nervous for him. When we reached this beautiful school and the wonderful principal came out to greet my son with a big hug the tension left his and my body. The faculty is wonderful! The whole feel is of truly caring teachers. My son who had been struggling in reading has made a big improvement due to the dedicated staff. The children are kept stimualated with visits from authors, shows, trips and the innovative ways the teachers find to hold their attention. Thye make learning fun and a place to look forward to going to. Three cheers to Mennies!

Dr. William Mennies has approximatley 600 students. The grades range form Kindergaten thru 4th grade. The teachers are wonderful. The library is awesome, and the school security does a great job. The Principle Rudd is easily accessible and really gets to know the students. Dr. William Mennies was recently awarded the Govenors School of Excellece Award for this school term 2005/2006. Overall I can not say anything negative about this school. I think it's great!

In 2012-2013 New Jersey used the New Jersey Assessment of Skills and Knowledge (NJ ASK) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in language arts literacy and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in science. 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.
