    Topographically this school seems to make the grade. Good scores reasonable diversity teachers who care no reported crime. However peel back the layers of the onion and there are some problems here. There have been reported incidences of bullying that they refuse to address (even with the tough NJ bullying laws). A principal that doesn't really appear to have the right demeanor for an elementary school. Finally unless your child is in the GAP program or is an IEP (special needs) they get left behind and are just shuttled through the system. You must stay on top of the teachers here (and I mean a lot) or you child will be forgotten and overlooked. As our children have progressed through the grades and moved on to the next schools we are seeing just what a disservice this school has been to our 'average' children.
