  • The principal is awesome, the teachers are awesome, the kids are awesome. We really got lucky buying our home where we did and got to send my kids to Potter School!

  • I have only been in the area for 18 months. I wish we had come here sooner. Potter is every parents dream for their child. Pride, self-confidence, eagerness to achieve and most importantly understanding and family are the focus of this magical place. Children are taught not to judge but to embrace differnces and help one another. I only wish my older child who has some issue was the appropriate age to atten Potter School I truly believe it would have made a huge difference in her academic experience. Keep up the good work. The Potter Family and it is a family from the principal to to custodial staff embrace every child as their own. Best school in NJ and maybe the US. North Jersey schools should take a lesson from this terrific place.

  • Great school with caring staff throughout. They definately go the extra mile to create an environment that helps children grow both intelectually and personally. The Principal "BELIEVES" in all the students and "Pride" is definately felt throughout the school which helps every child's self esteem. What a great school to be a part of. My 3rd and 4th graders love it!

  • I cannot say enough wonderful things about the school. From the principal, to the teachers, to the guidance counselor, to the aides in the cafeteria and the custodial staff, every person is always helpful and pleasant. The school is very personal. The principal can walk into a room and know kids by name at any given time. The teachers all go the extra mile to get every child what they need. I could not be happier. I will not move out of this area in order to keep my kids at Potter.

  • I have attended this school as a child, as well as my two younger brothers and my daughter. This year the school has won the kindest school in NJ award and in my opinion, is the greatest school in NJ for elementary education.
