    GREAT Special Ed program!! Mrs Andreas is wonderful. Many nice events for the school also. Vice Principal is the one to see with any issues.

    Just heard to day Ewing was the only district in Mercer County to meet performance goals for 2013! Hard work is paying off. Antheil is a great school.

    Antheil Elementary provided our sons with an excellent start in their education. Advanced classes team approach to learning and a very diverse group of students and teachers. The opportunity to participate in national programs such as Odyssey of the Mind are create students who learn to think critically not just test takers.

    This is school has been improving. A strong focus on academics has increased testing scores. Met some great families here. Wish there were more family's involved.

    The teachers at Antheil are great. We have had excellent teacher for the last 4 years. Character and respect are valued. There have been many changes at Antheil but all for a better future for our students.

    The curriculm has really improved over the past two years. Prior to that I was very disatsified and was looking for a private school for my child. The curriculum is low so I put my kids in extra learning programs such as kumon and the rider reading program. The teachers are really nice but they need to focus on math drills and active learning in the classroom. I don't trust the school to teach reading I teach my kids myself and send them to kumon for reading when they are 3 years old. I have 4 kids and my first child was not taught to read in school so I don't trust the school and make sure I teach my other kids at home. The school needs to set high standards for all of the kids not just the kids in the gifted and telented classes. Test scores are not the only indicator of ability. The handwriting program destroyed my kids handwriting. If you can afford it go private. If not use extra learning programs such as Kumon and rider reading to help make sure your children actually learn at grade level

    The quality of this school has gone down in the past decade. There is a definite disconnect between the teachers and parents. I agree that there are too many fundraisers and emphasis on it by the school. The focus needs to be on improving the test scores of the school and not fundrasing. I disagree that there is too much HW- practice makes perfect and I feel that there isn't nearly enough HW. The parents are not made aware of what is going on in the classroom. We do extra work with our child at home because we know that otherwise the child would be way behind normal standards for their age/level. There needs to be a standard curriculum that needs to be met by all teachers. I feel that each teacher is doing stuff that is completely independent of what the actual curriculum states and this is reflecting directly in the test scores.

    All the teachers my daughter has had have been wonderful dedicated teachers. This school has made my child love to read and to learn. The downfall not much school to parent notification about goings on. The have way to many fundraisers through out the year. I love to help with fundraising but they send home more than three or four fundraisers in a month.

    THE MORE HOMEWORK YOU HAVE AT HOME -- MEANS TO ME THE TEACHERS ARE NOT DOING THEIR JOB-- They are more concered about pay and Unions There is only maybe 4 good teachers here and they are to be complemented ---The rest need to go --but again Unions Cant fire them so ?????? Its better to pay for a private school - and if you can't get a second job -It will be worth it ...They have a couple people on there school board that collects 2 and 3 pensions --- BUT REMEMBER THEY SAY ITS ABOUT THE KIDS !!!!!! WE CARE ABOUT THE KIDS !!! LMAO

    Great teachers and staff that truly care about our kids.

    I think the school and teachers are great. We need more programs such as world languages or more extracurricular activities but I am also understanding that these activities require more budget investment.

    I am very very happy with this school. I like the way that they care for the students. The nurse is great she keeps a watchful eye on my child he has multiple food allergies. I feel at ease knowing that they put the safety of the students first. They have alot of great programs for children that need the extra help in their academics. The school is pretty well rounded it has a mix of different cultures. They even have handicap accessiblity.

    I have 2 children attending Antheil school. The teachers and staff are wonderful. It is a great school! What I love is the diversity in the school! What I wish there was more of is parent involvement. That is the only thing I wish I could change.

    Our child is in kindergarten and enjoys the schools friends and teachers. The PTO is very involved and parents show up for activities. This can be verified by how hard it is to find a parking space for events! The principal and vice principal are involved in all aspects and it shows in the activities they hold during and after school. We are please up to this point with the quality and security of the school. They provide a safe learning environment for our child.

    I have two children in this school and I couldn't be happier with the experiences they've both had. I'm extremely pleased with the availability of the staff from teachers to nurse to principal. They really care about the students.

    My child is in kindergarden and I am SO amazed at how much has has learned in a matter of 3 weeks!! He's reading so much better now. His spelling has gotten much better. I am so happy with his teacher.
