    Our First Grader is reading writing and doing math at higher than grade level and we are impressed with her progress this year. Compliments to school and staff for producing great results in student satisfaction and performance. Proud Grandparents Mike and Gayle Engle

    The building is very old. Do not have any extra-curricular activities or programs. Have very good teachers but not all. Admininstration does not care about discipline or bullying. I do not know what she is talking about character teaching....... Parent involvement is close to zero. Its the worst school in Ironbound. That school needs help. By the way on raining or snowing days children have to be outside getting wet and soak.

    My girl went in this school last year. The building is really old and there are no good teachers ! Her graduation cerimony was a messy! There aren't place to sit and I couldn't even take a picture of her.

    Our school received an award of $100 000 because our students have attained AYP (Acceptable Yearly Progress) for several years consistently.
