Love St.Matthias! Very family oriented, they care so much about your child and your child's education as well catholic studies. The Pre-K teacher Mrs. Colon is just one of a kind. Please do not hesitate to visit the school. You can tell by the interacting with the 8th graders the level of respect and knowledge you did not make a mistake in choosing this school for your child.

Great leaders starting from the Principal Barbara Wehnes, is very caring, helpful and involved, teachers like Mrs.Moren make a difference, and Mrs. Kline,the gym teacher, the front test, amazing staff always willing to help.Thank you! God bless you!

Principal Wehnes is an amazing Principal. The teachers are very good and the staff is friendly. If you are looking for a traditional old school Catholic school with a strong emphasis on education, this is a good choice for your child. There is strong parent involvement to ensure that the children success. The only negative is the lack of friendliness amongst parents.

How does a child graduate with straight A's and honors wind up in 8th grade math when entering Junior high school in New Jersey? My child will now have to take Geometry in the summer in order to catch up...something to think about..Also , why dont they have a hot lunch cafeteria at that school? The school makes PLENTY of money I paid over 4000 dollars for four years not including all the money during the school year I dont understand why my child had to take a sandwich for 8 years straight he wont even look at cold cuts any more. This school is ok compared to what the other options are around that area but obviously something is lacking in their curriculum.

My school is very unique.it has a diversity of races and teachers. Some teachers may appear on the unfair side such as the 6th grade teachers. Besides those 2 teachers, the school environment is very warm and loving. The students are always being assisted and challenged. Which is why many of the students graduate with scholarships. The students in the older grades get a 15 minute " recess" with no snack at 10:55 am. The younger students get a snack as long as they brought one varying at different times. This school is perfect if you are looking for a school with discipline! I wish you all luck in which ever school you decide to place your child or children in.

My family are alumni of this school. My son is now a first grader and has been attending St Matthias since Pre-K. The school offers a challenging curriculum in a supporting, community environment. I cannot say enough about how wonderful the staff of this school is. From the teachers aids, to the teachers, the clergy, up to the Principal they truly provide excellence in education. The parents are friendly and supportive of the school and participate regularly in numerous school events. All in all a wonderful opportunity for any child.

Where do I begin! As a new parent of a son in kindergarten, i am extremely satisfied. It has been five months into the school year and my son is reading with very little to no help from mom and dad. He is very happy and enjoys the activities the school offers such as piano lessons (extra cost); afterschool services (extra cost) with homework assistance and than watches a movie. Themed events are organized around the seasons with festivities and great energy. Parent involvement is off the charts and encourages traditions that are passed on by generation. The parish is filled with such devotion to the school now celebrating 100 years of quality education. My family and i are proud to be apart of this wonderful school community. I call upon all parents to visit us for open house last week in January, you won't regret this school as an option.

I switched my daughter from PS 239, to start second grade at St Matthias and I have noticed the difference in reading and writing. My daughter is very shy and quiet and I think it suits her better to be in a small class environment. Now she loves her school and that s very important to me. I also like the fact that she gets to learn about Religion, she comes home and shares stories about Jesus and the apostles that she's learned. My dauhghter attends the afterschool program, the staff is patient and they explain and help her with her homework.

Im in seventh grade, and i love my school! The teachers really connect with the children. I would recommend this school to anyone!

I am a former graduate of St.Matthias School, and I must say it is a very safe and disciplined school. The teachers care and are very involved in the student's education.The school is tough and they are very strict, but i must say it absolutely pays off in the future!
