  • I just want to thank the administration of this school for ruining my spouse's health. She is now on sick leave with an ulcer and stress disorder. As you have read in other reviews, this place is crazy. What is not written is how unsafe it is. My wife tells me there is one good security guard and the rest are afraid to do their jobs (because of one of the administrators constant threats towards them). Now I just read about the other teacher that is "done". Oh, by the way JCBOE, enjoy covering my wife's medical expenses! Good luck in finding her replacement because she is now "Done"!

  • I am a faculty member here who is so done with this school. The kids are totally crazy! They fight, hit teachers, curse, and roam the building. Basically, they rule the building. Our "ever so competent" (...) would rather blame the teachers than deal with the students. He is very quick with calling DYFS on teachers. If you are a parent DO NOT SEND YOUR KID TO THIS SCHOOL. If you are a teacher DO NOT WORK IN THIS SCHOOL, YOU WILL RUIN YOUR CAREER!

  • This school is beyond out of control. The administration has NO CONTROL over the students. Children constantly fight, assault teachers, and vandalize school property. My child got jumped outside after school a few weeks ago and NOTHING was done. Do not send your children here.

  • I am sick to my stomach that I might have to send my children to this school again this year. The students are OUT OF CONTROL! They run the halls, curse, fight, and vandalize the building. The administrators do NOTHING to discipline the students. My son was assaulted last year and he was the one who ended up getting suspended. I would never recommend this school to anyone!
