Running Brook provides an awesome environment for learning. The principle and most of the teachers are great. My son is a 2nd grader who has challenges with reading. He has made alot of progress in reading this year with the help of the reading program. The school has several activities for the students. ...  Read more

I have been pleasantly surprised by RBES. The staff has a tough job given the demographics of the school - lots of single parents, uninvolved parents and the transience of the students. Teachers have to work extra hard and there are a lot of resources at this school to help them succeed. I disagree with ...  Read more

The home room teachers are great and they try to bring the best out their students. However, the school counselor and her followers either lack training or have nothing to do but pick on students. Shame on you!!!

I'm a student at RBES and I disagree with all the criticisms here. The school is an interesting place to go to in my opinion, and most teachers & staff are at least reasonably nice. We do have some rude teachers, but they're outnumbered by friendlier and more enthusiastic ones. And what's wrong with ...  Read more

First of all, what the writer above sees as " teachers parenting children" I would have to disagree. Running Brook is a very nurturing environment. The teachers and staff alike go out of their way to make kids feel welcome. Unfortunately, there are those situations where the teacher needs to step ...  Read more
