    At Chestnut Ridge Middle School Sewell NJ my child suffered a broken wrist concussion and face contusions during a required gym activity. The school nurse sent her home on the bus without contacting me or my emergency contacts on our student profile. The principal supported her decision.

    I have 3 children one is presently in Chestnut Ridge and two who have moved onto WTHS. The teachers and staff are excellent. My oldest child has special needs and all of teacher from elementary school through HS have been excellent. The special education program is the best. All of the teachers my children have had were great and they all went above and beyond to make them achieve a great academic experience.

    CRMS was a fabulous school for my 6th grade son. The teachers took a sincere interest in my son's personal and educational growth and I will never be able to thank them all enough. Keep up the great job!

    I think that this school is great. They have just enough programs for children to learn and succeed through life. We have art classes for kids who love to draw and would like to become an artist one day computer class for children who love to deal with computers drama for children who love drama and a lot more. We have PTO's and I think they do a wonderful job with helping out our school. Our academic programs are wonderful too. We learn a lot and I know that what we're learning is going to be very useful in life.
