Great school for bright students. The enrichment (G&T) program is excellent and integrated into the schedule (it's not a pull-out program, like in earlier grades, which sometimes causes scheduling conflicts). Math program has received a lot of attention and now gives several classes of high performing students a chance to advance 2 years ahead by 8th grade, with the majority of kids getting at least 1 year ahead. Music program is great, the band and orchestra are really impressive. Taxes are annoyingly high, but that issue seems to come from a lack of revenue sources, and not run-away school spending.

i have been a student here for 2 years now, and most of the time i can agree that the school is very exceptional! Most of the teachers are extremely kind and willing to make learning a fun environment!

This school has newly set up an advanced Gifted and Talented system which encourages the excel of learning. It has just recieved a new principal who is getting used to the surroundings of the school. I see great oppurtunities with her. Readington Middle School has also recently brought their mathematics program up to date. This school is excellent.

Angry, overpaid teachers take their frustration out on kids...never saw an unhappier, less dedicated and more unmotivated staff in my life. Disgusting. Huge emphisis on standardized test preparation. Very high taxes.

This school is a great example of the 'Dumbing Down' theory of education. It makes no effort to advance smart or over achieving children. The school changes educational theories in math education every 3 to 4 years. There is no Gifted & Talented program, but has chosen a weak school-wide enrichment program which is half implemented and poorly funded. There is no tracking or deliberate comingling of talented kids. The school spent a great deal of time, money and effort in implementing block scheduling in the core courses, and is now taking Math out of the block scheduling, cutting back on foreign language education, and scaling back technical (read computer) classes to 1 year from 3 years (6-8).
