    "Wonderful school with caring and effective teachers. Many teachers have children in the school and are alumni themselves. Warm and nurturing environment. I am surprisingly pleased how well they have handled my VERY different children. Moved to Port for the schools and commute and couldn't be happier."

    "Moving from a top notch school system in NJ, I was horrified! Weak curriculum, difficult teachers (for lack of a better term), unprofessional staff, and overall, a very cold environment! Scores are not usually attributed to the quality of instruction, especially in a school such as this, where most students seek tutoring and enrichment outside of school. Obviously the school is lacking! We are anxiously awaiting my husband's transfer back to the best schoolsin the nation!"

    "This is a fabulous school with excellent leadership. I have three very different children and all have been very well-served by the teachers and other professionals, who are caring and dedicated. The principal is responsive and attentive to detail. If only the middle school were half as good."

    "This is a first rate school. I've taught at it for 26 years and the scores speak for themselves. Reports to the contrary definitely hide their ax to grind. Gratuitous, petty criticism points to the motivations of the reviewers. Enough said."

    "In comparing this school to others, perhaps one could make the case that this is a very good school. But, make no mistake, it is not progressive AT ALL. The district, like many suburban ones is very traditional--test scores and Intel Scholars are important. This district helps those at the bottom and cherishes those at the top, but does very little for those in the middle. They talk a good game about differentiated learning, but there is no evidence of that in the schools. You might get a thoughtful teacher who would like to try new things, but often is unable to, because she has to prepare the children for the standardized testing. The leadership of the school is weak."
