    I am surprised to see why Ross Street Elementary School is rated 5 out of 10 to me it is a big understatement. Our daughter loved and learned so much while going to the school. Both Mr. Weitz (1st Grade) and Mrs Smith (2nd Grade) went above and beyond to establish personal connection to our daughter. We moved to Westfield in the middle of the year but my daughter missed Ross Street so much she wanted to go back. I would like to mention that her teacher at elementary school in Westfield told us that she is well ahead of other students since she already knows most of the curriculum that other students in the class started to learn. I would like to mention Mrs. Hahn is a wonderful principal. Thanks Ross Street Elementary School.

    I was a former student at Ross Street School. I really miss the teachers who were so nice and always helped me with my work. I learned so much from them. It is a great school!!!

    I had moved to Woodbridge and I didn't know what to expect when placing my child into the public school system. The school has exceeded my expectations in every way. The teachers are very caring and helpful and the principal is outstanding. Mrs. Hahn goes above and beyond for the school and its students. My child loves it there!!!

    My daughter attends first grade here. Ms. Mcnair is a very good teacher. My daughter is above level on everything. The school offers free before school tutoring for children who need it which is wonderful and RARE... and Mrs. Haan is a wonderful principal.

    Academically and technologically leaves a few things desired but I do believe that the staff here really cares about the students. I am surprised to see people bashing Mrs. Hahn. She has never been anything but attentive and compassionate in all my dealings with her.

    If you want your son/daughter to be treated as the school mascot a "raccoon" then this is the place you should have them plain and simple GARBAGE! The new principal Kimberly Hahn is a worthless pathetic and most unprofessional individual I've met. She ridicules and chastises the children so beware and make sure to listen to your children and most of all stand up for your children or she will bully them. I had to report her to the Superintendent for all the shananigans she tried to pull with my child.

I was concerned at start to put my daughter in that school because of other people comments but now that she is there I have no complaints and I am actually greatfull with all the staff and techers... Whenever I needed them they got in touch very quickly both teachers and staff.... Ross Street is THE BEST!!!!! Let's go Racoons!!!

    The office staff is extremely unpleasant to say the least. They seem to think that having alot of students is an excuse to treat people badly.
