While I think the teachers are trying their best given limited resources I have found the BOE to be inflexible and unresponsive. I have also discovered the superintendent has a lot to learn about parents and their needs. Information seems to be a moving target and on a need-to-know basis which is disappointing given the fact that this is a public school. Example When I requested information on PARCC the superintendent stated he and other superintendents were trying to take a "less is more" (communications) approach. This is a strategy he has since re-addressed given the concerns from parents legislators and the governor of the state.

This school system is honestly horrible. The teachers only care about their money and the faculty are lazy don't know what they're doing. First off it's nearly impossible to get in touch with the principal/vice principal. They never answer phone calls or respond to email. Secondly out of all the years I went to school there only about 5-6 teachers that I had actually cared about the students. Lastly the staff (principal vice principal secretary's etc.) are very rude. They have no respect for any of the students or parents. Overall this school is definitely NOT what it's worked up to be TRUST ME
I have to start of by saying that this school is completely different than what I thought and heard from others. The teachers just care about their pay checks and never reply to emails. The only way to contact them is by scheduling an appointment. But the office makes this impossible. My child is learning disabled and learns showers than others. I find that the school does not cope well with special needs students or their parents. Nevertheless this school is much better than Nutley's slowly rotting schools. I went through hell with them and that is part of the reason I moved to Cedar Grove but now I regret it. Looking forward to move to West Milford or Millville relatives say that the public schools are top notch. I hope my advice was helpfull specifically to parents with learning disable kids.
