A wonderful learning environment for our daughter. Beyond the pure academics, we know she's in the best place we could hope for, in terms of nurturing a thoughtful, compassionate, and loving human being.

I have had children attending All Saints for the better part of 8 years. This school has been a real blessing in all our lives. My children have gotten a solid academic foundation for high school, they have made great friends, and have had their faith strengthened and their sense of Catholic identity enlivened. Parents also find a warm and welcoming community of adults. I highly recommend the school as an all around enriching experience! There is truly nothing better, in my book, than being in one of the assemblies, hearing the children pray boldly together and then joyfully cheer for and encourage each other in their efforts... which is what you will find happening at the various spelling and geography bees, the musical and drama performances, NJHS, etc.

I have 2 children attending All Saints - I couldn't be happier with every aspect of the school. The teachers are very dedicated & 2nd to none, the supporting staff is top notch, the children are very supportive of each other, the parents are eager to volunteer, and all are lead by an incredible, intelligent, caring principal and his vice principal. Regarding a post from last year - yes the school does have recess monitored by volunteer parents. To me this is a great example of the school and the family working together towards the success of the child. Parents also volunteer in the class room, library, and in many school sponsored events thru out the year. Yes there is a hard top for recess - there is ALSO a field area complete with an extensive playground (this has been there for many years). I have never had an issue with the school notifying me on the 3 occasions my daughters received minor injuries or became ill. The class size seems to be on par with what I've seen in the local public schools. The children do have homework and much is expected of them academically - RIGHT ON! I never hesitate to recommend All Saints to other parents.

We have been at this school for 3 seasons, This year exceptionally high turnover in staffing. The carpool system is horrible and inefficently run. Parents and volunteers staff lunch and recess which leads to no disapline and issues arise within in that time. My child has been injured at school and I not been informed. Larger class sizes then most public schools and the recess and PE is perfomred on a aspahlt parking lot. No fields are available. On a positive note--I do believe my childs academics are above par, but they are working their nails to the grindstone. But we will not be returning.

Our son is in Kindgergarten at All Saints and we couldn't be more pleased. The teachers and staff are dedicated and ensure that parents are very involved in their child's development. The principal sends out regular updates to parents to ensure they are aware of the day-to-day activities and concerns. The curriculum is strong and well balanced and as a result our son will now enter first grade already reading, writing, and performing basic math functions. Our son loves the school, loves his teachers and has made some great friends in his first year. All Saints excells at reinforcing our Catholic faith and assisting parents in installing the morals, values and discipline that our kids so desperately need today. We are so happy with this school that our 4 year old will start the Pre-k program there as well next year.

I have two children in All Saints. One in Middle School and one in elementary. I cannot say enough about the school and the attention they give to students, even those who are struggling. My middle schooler would not be where she is today if not for the kindness, compassion and dedication her teachers have shown her since she was in kindergarten as she was in kindergarten. She wouldn't have gotten that in public school and we are forever grateful as she grows in confidence and also has the benefit of participating in a variety of after school activities like band, choir and sports all at a reasonable cost. One of the best values in the area for the lifetime foundation it gives each child!

I have a daughter attending the school for her 2nd year and I am nothing but impressed with the school, staff and community. Being new to the area, All Saints was a blessing for our family. My daughter is growing to be an excellent little human being thanks to the assistance provided by the school in re-enforcing the Catholic values and educational strength.

My children have been attending this school now for 2 years. I have been nothing but pleased. My children attended K in the local public school, but the principal and staff made it very difficult to communicate. At All Saints, it has been so easy to get in touch with the teachers, staff members, and even the principal. My children are receiving an excellent foundation in their religion as well as their core curriculum. The school has several wonderful programs that keep the students engaged.

Our child finds it easier to focus on academics in this environment than when in public school. The school strongly supports our beliefs and role as Catholic parents. There are enough extra-curricular activities and clubs for our child to have a choice. The before/after school program has great leadership and our child loves it, wanting to spend at least an hour there before heading home. The principals door is always open and he makes sure a response is given to calls/e-mails. He greets the children every morning and has lunch in the cafeteria with the classes. Virtus training to identify and prevent abuse are required for all staff, along with annual re-certification. JR, parent

We are a military family that has been embraced by All Saints. The academics and parent involvement are superb! The principal has excellent communication skills and a sincere interest in ensuring the children are successful. High Terra Novas. Accelerated classes are the norm not the exception. Award winning band, chess club, sports. For a Catholic school, the extracurricular activities, the service opportunities, and the 'extras' that make a community great make this school worth every dime. Also has a very strong Catholic identity.

I have two children attending All Saints and have been involved with the school for the past 5 years. The faculty and staff are incredibly commited to the mission of the school: Catholic education, high standards of excellence and personal responsibility. The turnover of the teachers in the past five years has been minimal; most because of family moves and change or medical conditions. The principal, Mr. Conroy, is does a good job of juggling the many aspects of manging the school, focusing on circulum and supporting the teachers, and provding a safe environment. Walking through the halls of the school is an experience in discipline with respect. The school does have limited resources for special needs, so a parent needs to recognize that the school may not be a good match for all children.

We have two children attending All Saints and are very happy with the school and the education they are receiving. I would like to respond to prior comments made. The principal may put a positive spin on things but this is his job. Principals not only run a school they need to remain optimistic when handling tough situations. As for LD or children that need additional assistance. I know of several teachers that go out of their way to make themselves available after hours for the children needing extra help. Additionally, Catholic Schools do not have the same funding public schools have. Recently the paper published the educational expense per student in several counties. All Saints does not receive nearly that amount per student even when you include parish and diocese contributions. With the schools limited financial resources it is not able to provide fully for special needs children.

I have two children who attend All Saints School. The faculty and staff are terrific and especially the principal. They are strong academically but they could strengthen their program with students with learning disabilities.

Posted November 30, 2004

I attended All Saints from 5th through 8th grade, and found the education to be a pleasant experience. The teachers are more than willing to help you educationally, but the lack of discipline and patience with LD students is appaling.

All Saints currently has a preK program which is excellent. The program educates and nurtures the whole child. There is excellent communication between the teachers and parents. The parents are kept informed regarding the children's progress. My only complaint is with the middle school program. Discipline is often geared toward the whole grade and not the individual. The math program needs to be strenthened and assistance given to help children who are having difficulty. Also there is a high teacher turnover rate. The principal often gives every concern or issue a positive spin.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
