    This is the best Middle School in NJ. Obviously the review below is a complete lie. The principle is trustworthy vigilant and caring for all students. There are barely bullies in the Middle School. Every student is treated with respect. And whenever a student is academically failing the teachers will do their best to make the succeed. My child a boy was failing in other grades in the school of my hometown. But when we moved here he succeeded into being an honor student.Apparently the students and staff of the school as the best people you will ever meet with kind personalities. The clubs develop the structure of the future and they are achieving in doing that. Overall this is the best middle school. In a scale of 1-10 I recommend 100.

    I would strongly recommend people not sending their kids to Belleville Middle School or the High School. Unless you're close with the administration you child will be left behind acedemically. this school doesn't prepare you child for anything other than a failure. the principal is horrible and only cares about passing the ap kids. they make all kinds of excuses when confronted.
