Open Quote Two of my kids go to this school. They have not only learned better in subjects but also developed extra skills. School leadership is excellent since last few years after taking over by new principal. This is really a recommended school with nice semi-suburban neighborhood. Close Quote

Open Quote #16 Elementary is pretty well-known as the best elementary school in Clifton and one of the best in the area (Montclair, Glen Ridge, Bloomfield). The neighborhood is great and the children mostly come from affluent families who are very supportive of their kids' education. Teachers, admin and facilities are also very well-maintained.

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.
