17 Parent Reviews for Sparta Alpine Elementary School

This school is one step above a penitentiary. The physical plant is old, worn and cold. Declining test scores and bullying are rampant throughout tthe school. Their programs for gifted students is a joke. Regionalizing the school has been a disaster for the community and putting your kid on a bus ...  Read more

Alpine School is now a 3-5th grade school and it is phenomenal. Please disregard postings from 2008 and prior years. Sparta has undergone a major redistricting due to significant budget cuts by NJ Gov. Christie. Teachers had to be let go and the parents stepped up to fill in the gaps. Now two years later ...  Read more

We moved to this school district in April of 2011. So far, my children's experiences in the classroom have been positive. I felt inclined to post a comment after reading some of the past negative comments. There has been a major reorganization of the district (in 2010). Alpine is now a gr. 3-5 school ...  Read more

I had to write a comment after reading reviews written for Alpine School. I have three children who are going or went to Alpine School. The teachers truly care about the students and strive to bring out the best in all of them. The school runs smoothly and is welcoming. Thanks to the Principal and ...  Read more

Overcrowded. Disorganized. The clincher is : administrative staff that borders on rudeness. My child likes this school; otherwise I would find another school. I agree with all the previous poster said. Clearly, the principal is not up to the task of running a school. She is good at standing around ...  Read more

I have two children at this school. My children like the school but I am far from happy. My children's teacher's are lovely but the Principle has her own adgenda and it does not seem to be the school's performance. The 'No child gets left behind policy' means that many children get bored and frustrated. ...  Read more

I have four kids at this school. I am not happy with the school system at all. The reading program is not based on scientific research, they claim it is but don't have the back-up to support it. The school does not test for reading problems or delay's until the completion of 2nd grade, that is way ...  Read more

The prinicipal and assistant principal are very, very good. They are completely into the children and their best interests. The PTO struggles with communication, but I suppose that is not uncommon. So far, we have had fantastic teachers who are willing to communicate at any time.

I have two graduates from this school. Both of them had learning diabilities. One is a top University graduate, with a degree in Phycology and a Special Education Minor- Dean's List. She is on the way to her Master's in Special Ed. The other just completed her freshman year at a first class Southern ...  Read more

My daughter has been at Alpine for 3 years. I am not happy with this school one bit. They seem to change their programs every other year. They do not utilize scientific research based methods for teaching. Your concerns get nothing but lip service. Furthermore, you are expected do teach what your ...  Read more
