    Very happy with school -new principal has made 100% positive impact - teachers are happy and children are happy. Children with special needs get attention needed - I highly recommend this school over others if moving to west milford

    not impressed. very overcrowded class sizes. there needs to be smaller classrooms. Major problem in this school!

  • (8 years ago)

    Kids who need extra help are ridiculed gifted and talented art and district chorus are popularity contests and not based on talent. Overall an average elementary school

  • (8 years ago)

    I have had a few problems with the children however the staff/teachers are there for the kids and will do whatever it takes to help the kids presently testing a new math program and the staff and kids seem to enjoy this new program. Very involved PTA

  • (11 years ago)

    Classes are over crowded and the building is outdated for the function of the students. I sense that the teachers are overwhelmed by the volume of students. Needs proper facilities and more motivation. Not funded well for the amount of taxes paid by the community.
