    John Glenn School is what keeps me in Pine Hill...The staff goes above and beyond..my oldest attended another local district and it is truly night and day. The way they encourage family /school activities is great.

    If it weren't for the Superintendent of Pine Hill this would only be 2 stars. He is a very involved leader. He is truly interested in the children and those families that want to be involved with their child's future. Some teachers are wonderful and some just want a paycheck but you will find that at any school or even any job. The disappointment is in the quality of the aides that come through. Unfortunately the area is mostly working class that do not get involved with the school...either due to their jobs or maybe they don't expect their kids to exceed beyond the town. It is a shame that the officials of the town don't want to build new houses in the area (without kick-backs) to attract more professional families. Families that would be willing to get involved to make it an exceptional area to live and go to

    I agree the princeable does his absolute best given the hand he is dealt with I am impressed with his leadership and commitment but his job looks to be quite challanging given the fact most parents in this community blame the school system for the behaviors of thier children and are quick to blame every problem on the school.

    I would ha ve to disagree with the poster who said that the school does not handle children with difficulties. The Pine Hill School system has a wonderful special education program at the school. I would agree though tat the school system makes it very hard for children to get into this program. I had to fight for years for my child to get the help that she needed. I think this is due to NJ standards and funding.

    I strongly agree that the school does not have alternative programs in place for children that may have difficulty in school.

    This is a great school and the teachers are exceptionally dedicated to the overall development of the school. the mobility rate is high and but the main stream parent population represent very hardworking parents who care about their children getting a good education.

    This is an excellent school. My child is really pushed to do her best and she is offered lots of activities that enhance her education. I think her teacher is remarkable and the principal is very involved.
