Hope the superintendent leaves before your child starts school there. Teachers and other staff are affraid to speak their mind for fear of retaliation. Superintendent is a bully to staff and children. PTA is very clicky.

I'm only giving this school two stars because of the teachers!!! First back to school night was a nightmare. My son started there on his 4th grade and parents are not very welcoming! If you are not born and raised in Totowa you have no changes of being accepted by other parents. Lunch time and breaks need more supervision. After school programs are very expensive and they need to give more support to parents and new students. On the other hand, teachers are very nice ( I guess they are not from town) my son is an honor student thanks to them. My advise to the school, please be more friendly, that goes to the principal and some staff members too (not the teachers)...

This is a very good school. I have a son who is in 5th grade now. He started in PK and since then the help he gets from his teachers are absolutely second to none. My wife and I are very happy that we selected the community so that our son can go to this school. Quality of the teachers and their dedication to teaching you probably will not find elsewhere. Parent's involvements are also important and essential in a child's development. Education and other after school suplimental activities/sports which build character and instill confidence in every child and we find all these in this community we live in and you can not buy this with all the money you have.

I am the student updating and I love the school so much!!! When I first got there someone was there to help me with all my classes! I fell protected too! There are police officers around the entire school to make sure everything is in place! I made friends easily the students are so nice! I just wish the vice principle wasn't so rude

Before moving to Totowa, NJ from Miami, I read the reviews. And, the reviews were not so pleasant. Therefore, I was a little nervous about enrolling my daughter in this school but, I had no choice. Luckily, after enrolling her, our experience did not turn like the stories in the reviews. Our experience was and has been positive. First, my daughter's first day at this school was Great! The staff (secretary, nurse, counselor, principal...) all introduce themselves to us. Then, the asst. principal took my daughter and gave her a tour of the school. Talk about V.I.P treatment! My daughter quickly felt comfortable in the new environment. It has been 2 years since then and my daughter still enjoys this school. The teachers are wonderful and the staff has always been very helpful. The only thing that I would like different is for teachers to take the kids on Field Trips. My daughter has been at the school for 2 years now and still has not gone on a field trip. : (
