    "Great school! I have 2 children enrolled. I have been very pleased with almost all of the teachers. Both love school and have had very positive experiences there for several years now. There isn't another school in this city where I would rather have them enrolled. The administration is ethical, effective and ambitious in providing a challenging curriculum. The school relies heavily on parent funding and there is a great deal of pressure to give extra time volunteering, which is very difficult for a household where both parents work. At the same time, I am amazed at the parent involvement and commitment."

    "I too am shocked by some of the previous comments. I have been nothing but pleased by the quality of education my children receive at HCS and the nurturing environment in which it is provided. Teachers and staff encourage communication with families, and having 2 teachers per class is an amazing asset. My children enjoy school, feel safe and are learning and developing! Our board is stronger and more active than ever, working hard towards getting us back into a Hoboken bldg that is better than before, and the appt of Ms. Grode (princ) and Ms. Jain (VP) has strengthened the school, esp. our middle school (MS). In the past many children left for private MS however over the last 4 yrs, almost all of the 4th graders continue onto our MS program. I sure every school has a few unhappy parents or children for whom the school is not a good fit but the % of neg comments here just doesn't match up with what I hear. My complaints: (1) some parents just don't get involved despite the sch attempts (2) we have a lot less $/poor facilities compared to other schools. My suggestion is to hit the playgrounds and speak to parents of the school before making a conclusion from this website."

    "This isn't bad school however not a great one, but definitely a school that would be better if they practiced what they teached. They don't. I am very disappointed."

    "It's such a disappointment to see all of these negative reviews. I'm a student at Hoboken Charter and I think that it's a wonderful place. The learning experience there is great because you always have fun classmates and you'll always get a great teacher. Teachers are the key to our education, if you don't have a teacher you enjoy then you're not going to have a good time and you won't try as hard in class. Hoboken Charter has great staff with tons of supporting people to help you out in times of need. There's not a single teacher that's not enjoyable to learn from. The staff that work there aren't cruel to us students at all, I've been in about an estimated 4 fights throughout my 9 years of attending Hoboken Charter and i can safely say that there was no HARSH punishment. In a matter of fact i barely even remember if I had a punishment, but at the end of the day everyone in the school was supporting me again and helping me get back on my feet. Now this is my opinion as not everyone has to be the same, but I can safely tell you that Hoboken Charter may have been all these horrible things you say it might be, but I know for a fact that it's an outstanding school and i still love it."

    "I am in the seventh grade of 2012 and when I read this I nearly dropped the laptop. Everyone has the wrong idea. When I came to this school, I couldn't read, and neither could some of the others. But in fourth grade, I was reading at a level that kids on grade 11 could read. I'm also a speed reader. In fourth grade I beat 30 to a 100 kids in the spelling bee. The staff is amazing and care for our safety, and the music program is amazing. I have all A's and and because of this school, I will probably be sent to an amazing high school. When I'm asked about favorite childhood memories, my mind races starts running down the list of memories. When I graduate in grade 8 I will always remember this school."
