Open Quote Don't know what the other reviewer was talking about. My son does science experiments/labs all the time, and in math is with his classmates at grade 8 taking Algebra 1, which most NJ kids don't have until high school. Most teachers are fun and creative and there is a caring vibe. Mr. Pfeiffer in guidance is amazing. Lucky this is my neighborhood school. Close Quote

Open Quote Terrible math program. Over 30% of kids have private tutors to teach them the things they should be learning in school - this may explain why the NJASK scores are good. Except for an accelerated math program beginning in 7th grade for a select group of kids, there is NOTHING to offer the top performers on a daily basis. Most of these kids are bored beyond belief as most classes are taught at about a 5th grade level (open book quizzes, multiple choice tests, etc). Science is either the teacher reading from the book or putting on a video - no hands on experiments, no use of microscopes. Many kids have a terrible time first semester in 9th grade as they are not adequately prepared for high school. Really a shame. 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.
