Horrible school and district. On the 4th year of waiting for the legally appropriate supports to be put in place. Violation of FAPE, LRE, IDEA 504 Section II Of the ADA. Child placed 12 times now, unacceptable. They have no clue what Autism is nor do they want to learn how to accommodate it. Disgusting ...  Read more

If your child has any problems learning, don't put them here. My older daughter went through Pen Argyl schools with no problem. Unfortunately my 9 year old has learning problems, especially with Math. I was told that she is "below average, but not enough to get help". She was barely over an F in ...  Read more

I did not like Plainfield Elementary and my daughter did not like it either. They did not communicate with me about educational issues nor did they let me know when there was lice. My daughter is much happier now that she is not in that school district anymore.

I had the joy of student teaching at this elementary school. The involvement of the principal was commendable. The energy of the teaching staff was exciting and positive. I feel the students of this school are immersed in a very caring and well-driven learning environment.

Plainfield Elementary is a fantastic school. The principal is personable, approachable, and great with the students. The teachers we have had the pleasure of getting to know have been wonderful.

I feel this school is good for the most part with teachers and parent involvement. I am greatly disappointed though; when it comes to getting special help for your child. I feel that meetings with me were delayed to long. I just feel terrible that I didn't bother earlier those years. Don't be afraid ...  Read more

Is a good school, the principal does his best to keep all students in line without being overly harsh. He is a good listener to all students. Some of the teachers are just wonderful with the children, and yet there are a few that need to remember they are teachers and need to be nice, not nasty. Teachers ...  Read more
