    "My son is in the fifth grade at EVG. He has been here since his first grade. We have loved EVG for him. He has grown in ways we never imagined. He has always LOVED to go to school and hates to miss it! Ultimately a good school is determined by how good it's teachers are. A good teacher can raise your child's personal scores by two grades, research shows. The years that my son has had good teachers, he has been the happiest. We've had a mix of good and bad over the years, but the new principal is ensuring the quality of teacher's above all else. She has instituted some marvelous literary programs from her Alma Mater, Columbia Universtiy and has the teacher's trained in them. She has brought the school technologically up to age. In a school with a high ESL population, we so needed the literacy initiatives. She has started NJ ASK prep because no matter how good the kids are, they need to have exam prep skills. Maybe it will take a few years. This school will be bringing hordes into the NY bedroom community of Edgewater. It is one to watch out for! I am very optimistic about EVG beings one the best in time to come. The kids get to mix with kids of all cultures."

    "School has many issues. Regular children are burdened with children with social and behavioral issues. Many children are below one grade level in class. School masks this deficiency by making students prepare for NJASK all year long. Not a lot of worldly learning, only by the books. Parents are not allowed to be involved much in class. Class parents get to help ask for free supplies and update info on fundraising. No class involvement at all. Principle of school is very qualified on paper. Her credentials on paper speak better than her actions. Quality of students in this school is questionable. It will take a few year before EVG turns to a gem; however, only if good families in the communities believe in the school and remain in public school. Chances are pretty slim.."

    "The two edgewater elementary schools divide student population so that K-2nd Grade is at George Washington and the 3-6 Grades are at EVG. There is a de-emphasis on mathematics and hardcore curricula at both school. Both schools place more value on language arts, such as reading and writing, but at the expense of math & science. This year alone, 1st Graders lost 1 hour of math and 1 hour of science per week, to accomodate writer's workshop, principal's pet project. And that de-emphasis has been going on for a while. Class sizes are 20 kids or more in every grade, don't know where the stat of 10 students per teacher came from. Overall, this school may have been good once, but it has not been for a while now."
