Great leadership and parent support. I have yet too hear about a problem with the children, teachers, or faculty. The only issue with this old school is the AVAC. The is over 100 years old and still has no central air. So some of the rooms are very warm in the summer. I am thankful that my children have been attending this wonderful school.

Very personal attention from the caring staff. Active PTA with many extra-curricular activities for children and their siblings and parents. Grandparents' Day, school trips, special Spirit Days throughout the year.

I too am so thrilled with Yardville Heights and it has the best PTA around.. I do wish Hamilton TWP would clean up their schools a bit more, some classrooms are so cluttered, I can't imagine what would be found if they just cleaned up..paint and freshen the environment up...I am also very please with the wonderful GT program..thanks

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.
