    An education is what you make of it. And the teachers in the Mt. Arlington School District are there to help your child make the best of their elementary school years. My children have special needs and they have never been left behind. They have been challenged far greater than their potential. The PTA has an overabundance of parent volunteers. This is truly a community school with parents teachers students and administration there to lend a helping hand whenever needed.

    We moved to this town looking for a good school for our daughter what a big dissapointment the quality of the academic programs is within the standard but don't expect more than that. This school is good if you have a lot of extra time to dedicate to your child otherwise your kid will only receive the average. There is no diversity 88% of the students are white therefore if you are not in those 88 don't expect your kid to make a lot of friends. I want to emphazised that the school is not bad it is just that is an 'Average school'.
