    I am currently a 8th grader at this school. I've got to say they have an outstanding facility and that's what convinced my parents to enroll me as well as the reviews. Right when I got to this school I despised it. This school has absolutely no discipline and low education. I cannot believe the curriculum they teach. The kids have no respect for the teachers or the school and neither does the teacher for the students. Unless you are in AP you should go to a different school. Unless you are in AP teachers act like there's not hope for you and do not treat you the same as others. Regular classes didn't even even receive high school applications. I had to ask for it myself. Bad school. No discipline. Low education and unbalanced. This school is so unbalanced it made me uncomfortable. The lunch ladies are rude. And they food is always the same and salty as ever.

    This school is excellent. State of the art facility. Teachers are available before and after school even for kids just having fun int he field. We had an issue with enrolling my son during the middle of the year when we moved. I wrote a letter to the NJ Department of Ed and it was addressed immediately! My son went from being very laid back with his school work to taking pride in his work. I have never seen him work so hard as he did on his summer project. He is inspired to excel. I attribute the many male role models and the administration that takes time to get to know their names and faces individually! They offer all kinds of after school academic support. We truly felt a partnership with is new school!
