    gym teacher likes to label children bullies! they do not follow state guidelines and should be under REVIEW! math dept. needs help.

  • (1 year ago)

    Deal Elementary school is a woderful school and has proven over the 8 years we have been attending that it is a great option for our children. I am not sure what the previous review was all about other than possibly one disgruntled parent who is no longer here and as a result things are even better. Play a role in your children's education. Get to know the teachers staff and other parents. Nothing to complain about here!!

    This school is the worst!! They make up their own rules and don't follow State requirements.The Core Team they implemented is unheard of in any other district and morally wrong for a panel of teachers to bully one student. Parents are NEVER notified on anything important until their children tell them. Social Studies is a complete joke and so is Math. In my opinion the Superintendant doesn't care about the school staff or the students and clearly needs to retire.Do your family and your children a favor and please don't make the mistake of sending your children here.

    "Awesome great" reply my son and some of the other children that attend school at deal when ask about their school. As a parent I want to know that my son is happy and comfortable in the environment that he is learning. So far he loves it at Deal school and also his 3rd grade teacher. She is loving and very kind. We have great communication regarding my son and I believe working closely with our teachers will help our children to strive academically.

    This school is a nightmare. The students have no discipline because the teachers and administration are afraid of the rich parents. The nuts are running the nut house. Send your child here only if there is absolutely nowhere else including home school to send them.

  • (4 years ago)

    When my kids transferred out of this school and started their new schools we found that they were far behind their peers in their new school in terms of curriculum. So much in fact that we had to hire tutors for both of them to catch up. Deal School is definitely not all it's cracked up to be. The teachers are alright but not spectacular. The administration is a joke. The gossip level amongst adults there is shameful (for adults). The politics of the school (staff v. administration) is a sad state of affairs as well. The principal has something negative to say about practically everyone (nice example to set) which again leads us to the gossip level. Don't waste your money send you children elsewhere.

    I recommened this school. Deal School is a modern version of 'old school'. The smaller class sizes lets the teachers treat each child as an individual and not just a face in the crowd. My children have excelled because they feel confident in a secure environment. The teaching staff is excellent challenging the students both in the classroom and with their homework assignments.

    The purpose and goal of an elementary school is to provide its students with the academic foundation necessary to excel in high school and college. Deal School is exceptional in this regard. Both my children graduated from Deal School and entered a top-ranked private high school with skills that put them head and shoulders above their peers particularly in English and Social Studies. The investment in my children's K-8 education paid big dividends in terms of academic and organizational preparedness when they reached high school. While all my children's teachers were very good I found the upper-grade Language Arts Social Studies and Science teachers to be absolutely first-rate.

    If small class size and individual attention are what you're looking for with a teaching staff that puts children first than I cannot think of a better place than this school.

  • (6 years ago)

    class size is GREAT attention by the teachers seems GREAT administrative staff is probably the most painful folks I have ever had to deal with. simple simple requests that go through the office are ignored or 'translated' EVERY phone call to the office is a root canal. Heaven forbid your kids need special services the administration acts as if you landed from a space ship. very frustrating

  • (6 years ago)

    This school is way over-rated. Excessive homework that is really 'busy work' no real lessons involved. Administratively speaking they are pathetic at best. There have been myriad accidents on the playground due to the fact that teachers supposedly 'supervising' are too busy chatting with each other and not paying attention. Send your children elsewhere if possible. They actually send letters home asking you to refer other families with children in order to solicit and bring in students.

    The principal doesn't seem to care at all. The teachers and the class sizes are great. They really need to get some real administrators in there who put the students first. There is quite a bit of homework compared to other schools.

  • (7 years ago)

    Mixed bag here. The teachers were great. For the most part they really seemed to care and the small class sizes help them cater to the kids individual needs. Bottomline the teachers really seem to care while the administration really doesn't.

  • (7 years ago)

    Pricipal is also Superintendent of School and answers to no one. If you complain you talk to the wall at that school. Great parental support Great extra curriculum.

  • (8 years ago)

    I am proud to say my child has excelled academically since being in this school. The class sizes are very small and the school is in a remote location away from the caios. I would recommend it to anyone.

    This school is undoubtedly one of the safest most progressive and dynamic of any i have ever worked at. The staff and faculty at deal are exceptional. Every teacher and every class seems to be excpetional as well. The principal here is also 'on top of the game.' He seems to genuinely care about how the children are educated and personally strives for excellence in administration. My name is albie sternberg and i am a substitute teacher seeking my master's degree in elementary education. I went to american university from august 1997 until may 2001. I then attended the suffolk law school in boston massachusetts from august 2001 until may 2002. I am now working towards the education degree at monmouth university in west long branch nj. Parents take notice! deal school is a wonderful place for your kids to learn.
