I am a graduate of Frank Antonides school and a current teacher in another district. After having the opportunity to work and observe in several districts I can honestly say that I received a very well rounded education at this school. I learned things that other districts never even touch on! I had Spanish and Computer Education from kindergarten to eighth grade which is unheard of in most other districts. I would highly recommend all the schools in the West Long Branch School District.

The principal of Frank Antonides Elementary School is Mr Chuck Welsh and can be contacted at email@example.com. 355 students go to Frank Antonides Elementary School and are mostly White, non-Hispanic; Hispanic; and Asian/Pacific Islander. 11% of the 355 students here get reduced lunch prices.

If you have a special needs or ADHD child - Good Luck! You will need it in the WLB School District. The district's professional staff insist they are smarter than medical professionals and getting help from this VERY difficult. NJ has strong laws that require school districts to provide as much help and spend as much money as needed but these folks will fight you for every nickel. They sign off on treatment plans but they never seem to get put in place.
Great teachers lend to a good atmosphere that drive my children to succeed. They love going to school
FAS is a godd school ONLY if your child is an averge student and interested in sports as extracurricular activities. Being a parent of both an advanced acadmeically child and an ADHD child I found the school to be worse then lacking on both extremes. For the advance child there were no real challenges. The schools A.T. program was at best a fun distraction but certainly not of any real value.Plus children were almost penalized by other teachers for being involved in it. For my ADHD child it has been a constant struggle to have even the barest of services provided.
