    Racist small town mentality athletic is focus not education hated the entire experience. 53% property taxes & I had to take my kids out. No respect for teachers parents are part of a big problem along with administration. Lots of lawsuits going on wouldn't recommend anyone to go to any of the schools. My best advise move! Get out if you can because it's not getting better.

    The worst school ever . However If you are a bully this school would be a perfect fit for you . Mr. Benfatti only concern is sport and bulling is just a small problem that doesn't need much attention.

    Admittedly The school isn't perfect though I love it very much. The teachers are good at working with what we have though we are now falling away from what we once were because of budget cuts. Governor Christie isn't helping either.

    I have had one child go through the school and now have a second attending. My son has never had any problems with other students and I have found the teachers to be concerned and responsive throughout.

    I have to strongly disagree with the comments from the parent dated June 2004. For starters this particular parent's linguistic grammar punctuation and spelling skills (e.g. extreamly??) are apparently representative of this particular parent. This school has one of the best principals in the field of education and the teachers are of equal quality. The staff focuses on providing a safe and enjoyable learning environment. One bad apple doesn t spoil the entire barrel.
