If you have the means stay away from this school if you can. My daughter went from an honor student in Bergen County to an average student in one marking period while at Maple Road School. March 14th, 2008 parent comment hit the nail on the head. My daughter was severely bullied to the point she through herself off the top of her bunk bed to not wake up and attend Maple Road School where her Bullies were. We reported the bullying to this Schools administrative staff and nothing was done. Yes, it is true, the Staff sticks together and cover up issues that should be addressed to ensure the students a safe learning environment where they can learn and grow. I'm an educator and I must say this is the worst school I've ever dealt with. I give this school a one star because I was unable to give it 0. Please parents if your looking to move to this town and have to send your child here you will regret it, this I assure you in the name of the Lord.

My son who is now 20 went here. Worst experience with a principal. She sided with her favorite students....threatened parents when they didnt agree with her. As a teacher if you didnt do what she wanted you were not asked back the next year. There were a few teachers that were great other than that Im so sorry my kids went there.

Maple Road School is an excellent school that has provided my children with a great environment to learn. The teachers are the best. I have never had a problem with approching the staff when one of my children needed extra help or was having an issue. The new principal is refreshing and does not put up with any type of student harrasment. I would highly recommend this school.

I wouldn't even give this school 1 star but for the sake of a couple of good teachers that are there. My kids, my husband and I absolutley hated this school, we rejoiced when we left. Class sizes were way to large, the kids (on the whole) of course not all but on the average are cruel and nasty and very clicky which leads to the parents (not all ) who were just as bad. If you are an A student who is quiet you are in the right spot. If you are a student who needs extra help or has any learning disability forget it, Fighting tooth and nail to get the legal servies you are intitled to wears you out. I disagreed with the prinicpal on just about every occasion but she has her favorites (parents and teachers) and will alwasy side with them. This was our experience.

A top-notch school on every level! The principal and instructors are very dedicated and really care about the quality of education the students receive, as well as providing a safe and enjoyable learning environment. There is a very involved and supportive PTO here, and the activities and services they provide are extremely beneficial to the school. It really feels like a 'family', and there is a great deal of pride in this school on the part of staff and students.

I cannot believe the education my child has received -- professional, innovative, enthusiastic. The teachers, while making learning 'fun', have kept a steady eye on the necessary test preparations. The principal and reading specialist are top-notch, consistently trying to infuse excitement into learning programs. Additionally, parent involvement in the school really make it a Premiere Place to send young people. Go M.R.S.! Jennifer Metcalf

Not happy with class sizes they are too big. Supervision on playground is very poor! Overall just not a place I would like to attend school if I were a child.

I am very unhappy with the quality of services my daughter is recieving. My daughter has a mild learning disability and I have had to fight tooth and nail to get her any assistance. The level of support she recieves is minimal and she is falling further and further behind. It's sad to say, but my 7 year hates school due to the ongoing struggle that it has turned into. Taxes are going up. Class size is going up and quality of service has gone down.

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.
