The staff is completely committed to preparing our children at grade level and Brookers fair well once they get to High School. Many wonderful teachers, therapists and a dedicated superintendent and principal make our school superior to other school districts. Our after school activities are varied and have something for everyone - chess, homework club, sports, cooking, and band to name a few that my children have enjoyed. Most students really miss this Middle school when they leave. The quality of the classes that are geared toward individual learning make this school one of the best. I teach at a middle school where teachers complain about students and I am sure GBMS staff doesn't. We have a very dedicated PTO that covers both schools here.

My daughter is graduating this year from GBMS. She will miss the teachers, principal, and her friends. She is well prepared for high school and we thank the staff for their support these past five years. Thank you!

I think schools in general need to stop focusing on "passing the NJASK" and focus on making learning fun!! Kids learn more when they enjoy it! And I'd bet they'd still pass the the NJASK with flying colors so the school gets a good rating!!

School is in turmoil, teachers are depressed. For years this school has failed to prepare students for HS. Pick up any WHRHS yearbook. GB kids don't exist. If you find a GB student at all you can be sure they didn't go to GB school system. Adminstrators are completely detached from HS process. Administrators from other districts go to the HS awards ceremony and graduation etc. They keep track of what happens to their students in HS and after. GB has no contact or relationship with its students after 8th grade - school system is a disaster.

Two of my three children have been to GBMS. The teachers are fully dedicated to providing the students with a top notch education. They have been very helpful in providing extra help if necessary. The extra curricular activities have been thoroughly enjoyed by my kids. The students are all friendly and the kids really care about helping each other strive for perfection. Very impressive school.

What a wonderful school! Both the principal and assistant principal have an open door policy and give personal attention to each child and parent. Outstanding programs are always put into place to improve the learning. Only excellent teachers are hired and retained and they work hard and prepare their students well for the high school where many Green Brook students win awards.

GBMS is a school that has supported my child in his learning. The staff, teachers, and two principals make sure my child is safe and challenged in school. The school has outstanding scores on the state tests and a math program that has increased my child's chances to attend advanced classes in high school .

This school overall is a pretty good school. Great faculty that really made this school extra wonderful are leaving, though. There are still excellent teachers. I just hope that the principal loosens up a little.

This school holds many memories for me. Now that I am a junior in WHRHS, I remember all the good times in middle school. However, the school is way to interested in not breaking rules and not interested enough in making the students happy. A change of administration, not faculty is required.

As a former student, now a student in Watchung Hills, I've noticed that the school has been on a steady decline ever since i left. They have laid off some of the best teachers in the area due to the lack of efforts shown among the students, which is unjustified. Frustrated teachers have also left due to the problems among the faculty. Every year, too many teachers are leaving the school for undisclosed reasons; now, most teachers are inexperienced; the classes are, for a lack of better word, a joke. The lack of challenges in the school leads to the lack of preparation to survive the harsh demands of the high schools. I, myself, am deeply disappointed in the public education offered in Green Brook. Need I say more?

Teachers are very unhappy with administrative leadership. Administration is out of touch with the teachers. Fortunately, most teachers are still dedicated to the children. Perhaps the completion of the new building and renovations will spark life into everyeone.
