    "At one time the school may have been worthy of four or five stars, but certainly not today. My child's sixth grade teachers were great, seventh grade mediocre, this year's eighth grade teachers are a disaster. Only one decent teacher for eighth grade, the rest not much interested in teaching. Paperwork comes home with incorrect verb tenses, wrong dates, incorrect grammar etc. My child was writing on a high school level in seventh grade. In eighth, the LA teacher made her write on sixth grade level. Administration does nothing to address bullying of students by teachers or other students, nor do they enforce the Code of Conduct parents and students are required to read and sign each year. If your expectations are low, or your focus exclusively on extra curricular activities, the school is probably fine, but if you are looking for a good education in a positive environment, no matter how great the school says it is, this is not the place."

    "My both kids attend the Melvin H Kreps school. My daughter is junior in college and she did very well in her high school as well in college. My son got great knowledge from this school. School is excellent The teachers, coaches and administrative staff are excellent. The Interscholastic Sports program is really good, the coaches put lot of effort. I am very impressed and I'm very happy that my both kids got excellent knowledge, wonderful and pleasant middle school experience at Kreps."

    "Melvin H. Kreps Middle School is staffed with some of the most talented and hard- working professionals I have ever met. That being said, it is also run by the most corrupt, incapable and downright abusive set of administrators. The administration, which promotes a no- tolerance, anti- bullying policy, is completely guilty of bullying their teachers-- sending them threats both verbally and via email, "demerits" after walk- throughs, micro- managing every aspect of the classroom and school environment (You must log into Genesis by 7:20 AM each morning or you will be punished). However, there is no solidarity amongst the administrators; one person will tell you to do one thing and another will tell you that you're doing that exact same thing wrong. Ask any of the teachers here and they will tell you how much they absolutely cannot stand the totalitarian dictatorship that "runs" this school. Worst of all, this model of fear and intimidation is not even effective. All it does it burn out great teachers."

    "Both of my children went to this school, my son is now a junior in Hightstown High school and my daughter is a freshman, They both did very well in this school.They were on the honor roll. The teachers were great and very accessible with the grade portal. The kids are all very nice, my son was in 7th grade when he started there and the children were very welcoming. There is no bullying or fighting."
