    My child has gone to Maple Avenue for five years and now my child is at Big Maple in the fourth grade. We have gotten so much support from their teachers. I feel like my child is going to the best public school in Newark. My child loves to read and isn't afraid of Math anymore. The teachers go out of their way to help the kids understand and enjoy learning. We Lucked out this year.

    I think maple avenue is a wonderful learning enviornment for students. Not only do you have wonderful teachers working at your side you have wonderful class mates to help you as you go down the way. I was very sad when I left maple in 5th grade my wonderful teachers and friends but I will always remember the how wonderful maple was.

    i think that maple ave is a gool school with me being a former student at that school and my whole family going there it hurted me when i left in sixth grade to attend private school but at maple i know that the teacher in that school will always have my back just as the students will this is the reason why i love maple my life has been there the teacher don't only teach but they make it fun by adding games as you learn.

    I find the teaching staff at Maple Annex of very good quality. Their teaching potential is grossly limited because of very poor leadership lack of supplies discipline and parent involvment. These things constrict the learning ability of our children. The lack of concern in developing a childs potential is stagnent because the leadership is controlled by self advancement and ego not concern of our greatest commodity our children.
