    My daughter is graduating this year. Thank Goodness because she is a straight A Gifted and Talented Student and the rate this school is going it will be compared to the inner city schools with low test scores. Thank God My daughter was there when the Teachers and Principal really cared. They really need to shape up.

    This year 2013-2014 year has been terrible. The new administrators have completely failed these children. There is no diversity among the staff in a district that is mostly Hispanic. The scores are lower than ever and the administration puts sole blame on the children. Not enough textbooks therefore they share class textbooks. 29 minutes for lunch and no recess and cannot leave seats at all. Lockers are broken and bathrooms are disgusting. Overall the school has nothing good. With the exception of maybe a handful of teachers who truly care. There is no principal and the Board of Ed pays no attention to the parents who speak up. In fact they are out right rude when you do attend the meeting to speak up. Huge FAIL!!!

    I recently moved to this school from IN and I have to say that you can't even compare the two schools. Though I love the teachers I have to say that I'm not impressed at all with the low grades at classes. The attitude of the students is really bad. As a student who doesn't usually get less than an A I feel left out. There is no strong music program except choir which for a band student it sucks. There is a small gym in the basement. I guess I expected too much. It's just so disappointing. My dreams like going to jazz band festival or contest I have to throw away. Who knows if they even have any in high school.

    I know it's a good school with a trong heart to give an education to the children of this small town.

    Changes have been implemented this year. School uniforms no one leaves school for lunch disciplinary rule list with punishments sent home for parents and child to sigh. I have a feeling this year the school will be back on track. Raves for new Superintendent.

    This school needs to seriously change the admistrators! The vice principal does nothing but worry about basketball. No discipline at all. The special ed. services stink! Overcrowded we have kids coming in from out of district that are taking funds from the kids who really do live in town. Overall very disappointed.

    I recently entered the North Bergen School district and am quite disapointed so far the curriculum is a lot slower than New York. The whole system in this area seems to need repair I am reading rave reviews from parents about this school but the test scores are very unimpressive. How can parents be so happy when the tests scores are so low?

    The Anna L. Klein School is such a wonderful school. My son and daughter went there. They had a great time but unfortunately we had to move. But I would surely recommend the school to parents. The school has a PTA summer school and the test scores are above the roof.
