Open Quote Coming from highly rated (Howell, NJ) elementary schools, this school was a MAJOR disappointment. While I had NO complaints about my younger child's teachers (grades 2 and 3), I experienced nothing but problems with the teachers and the curriculum dished out by the higher grade teachers (grades 4 and 5). Because this is such a low-performing district, I feel that my older child was being dumbed down to match the abilities of other children in the class, to the point of my older child being told that he was not allowed to read more advanced material than his classmates (some who read at several grade levels below 5th grade). The district implements a program from The American Reading Company which is a JOKE and a major waste of taxpayers' money to the tune of around $350,000, and other subjects such as math, science and social studies fall to the wayside and suffer greatly. Parents, if you are considering moving to this district, please do your homework and reconsider if you want your children in a great school. This is not it. The situation was so bad it was a major factor in moving my family elsewhere. 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.
