The current principal Dr. Monica Burton has trashed this school. Students have the worst NJASK scores in the state (lowest 5 percent). Instead of working with the teachers to make a difference she fires ALL who question her non-ability to lead inspire and raise student achievement. ?Dr. Burton has had over 50 percent teacher turnover/replacement in the last 3 years - and the school is still failing. This points to lack of effective leadership. This is a Priority School and the RAC of Essex is considering a charter for this site. Dr. Burton had a prior bad reputation at Washington. The students do not respect her because she puts more focus on painting hallways than putting money into teacher copy machines paper and supplemental reading material in classrooms. Avoid this school at all costs. Children leave this school less educated than when they arrive.
