    "I am really happy that I moved to Saddle Brook (affordable taxes, decent home values). My child attends Smith School. We are happy with the school and the way it is ran. They introduced a secure room in the front of the school. When people come to the school they go into a vault area. Its nice to that the BOE is on top of things. We are happy that the referendum passed because they have big plans for the district."

    "Smith school has been a wonderful environment for learning. The new principal has brought new ideas to the school. He introduced a drama club to the school. Every month we get a detailed report of where the school is at. The school has become more forth-coming of information. I love the app. Also the before care and after care program is great. Ms Helen is in charge of Smith school and does a really good job. The kids do their homework before they get to play."

    "I think the teachers don't get too involved in helping kids with some learning desabilities... changing to many classes, waiste lots of time walking from class to class. Need for the teachers to communicate more with parents, specially if they are in resource. need more updates... New principal I don't know yet... but this school is going down from many years ago... other schools in town are much better. need to improve on books and teachers."

    "Some of the teachers at Smith School are excellent and make a difference, Krantz specifically, but like everywhere, if your child gets a 'bad' teacher they float along maintaining the status quo. I dont think the Saddle Brook schools (elementary and especially upper grades) are above par but they are about the same as most towns around us based on friends opinions who have children in them. If your child is a smart child and above average then they will do well but if not dont expect these teachers to motivate those that arent. One last thing, the TAG (Taleted and Gifted) program is a joke - not worth the children's time and def not worth missing im portant classes for. I agree the Principal is a joke."

    "I had a boy in kindergarten and I thought he was doing fine. Then we moved to Connecticut and he was so behind that we had to get an extra tutor to get him up to speed. My daughter (who is now in kindergarten) has learned more in a month than he did all year."
