Open Quote I feel like it is one of the best schools in all of Union County Public Schools. Nice Teachers, a clean atmosphere, very little bullying, and a wonderful Music and Athletic Program. The lunches though are the same as every other public school, just ok... Close Quote

Open Quote Great, Great school. Teachers help and come in early if needed. We have had to email some at night and they have always email back to help. There is a strong feel of pride in this school and a lot of energy. Thanks for all you bring to our community. Close Quote

Open Quote I completely disagree with the previous review! My son is a freshman there and is exceling in all areas with an A average with all honors classes (4.75 GPA). We have found the teachers and staff to be fantastic! They are very responsive via email and truly care about our kids. Close Quote

Open Quote Do not send your child to Cuthbertson. Terrible administration and unhelpful guidance. Students are pushed way too far. Teachers are unkind and students are judgemental. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
