Open Quote Excellent caring teaching and staff. Dedicated and school spirited students who make an effort to be the best they can, combined with parents who are hands on and care about the future of our children. I moved here ten years ago and I'm so happy I did. Close Quote

Open Quote I rated this school Poor because we fell in school rankings state wide by 40%. Why ? I also rated us poorly because the sorrounding school districts are above average. We should have one school district with one superintendent for the entire Pascack Valley. Mr. Zoeller is failing at his job and needs to be replaced along with the academics in our school district. We don't need our kids taught social issues, we as parents can do that. Concentrate on important issue such as Reading, Writing, Arithmatic, Science, Geography and American history. Our kids are failing because they use them as Guinea pigs for NEW curriculim. 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.
