My son is in second grade, we've been at School 14 since K. Great teachers so far. Class sizes have been fortunately small - 16 this year, 17 last year. The minus -- the AM drop-off situation is a nightmare -- wish the township could get a handle on that. Lots of homework, challenging curriculum, ...  Read more

The teachers are outstanding. They work very hard and are wonderful with the children. Most parents are cooperative and very supportive. Some are always complaining.

I am not posting as an individual parent, but as a group of very disappointed moms. At one time this was an amazing school. I can not say the same now.

I must unfortunately agree with what was written about this school. The environment in this school had really gone down hill. There have been so many issues with this school that have been ignored and I just do not understand why. I truly wish someone would step in and listen to the parents....and ...  Read more

Great teachers, and parents. All enjoy teaching and getting involved with the fundraisers when my children went to the school. Will always be #1 in my book.

Last year was my kids first year at Fords elementary. I am pleased to say that they joined a family not just a school. They have a great system of keeping parents informed and involved. The pricipal was always willing to answer my questions in person or on the phone. The PTO welcomed me and appreciated ...  Read more
