We are extremely thankful for NJ School Choice. Dwight D. Eisenhower has an exceptional Staff of Professional Teachers who offer multi sensory learning and provides creative scientifically proven strategies. Their sincere dedication helps all children to become inspired to learn. They provide the Wilson Language program that helped my Dyslexic & ADHD,ADD daughter to read and excel to her potential. They also provide Earobics for CAPD and encourage parental involvement! This is a GREAT SCHOOL!

There is now Peace instead of a PTA. This program is set up so much better for the children.The teachers are very helpful in every way.

Academic programs are fine, but the children seem very 'fast'. There are various extracurricular programs. Teachers will give tutoring after school which is a definite plus. PTA has low membership due to parent apathy.

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.
