    "The Seth Boyden Demonstration School was established to meet the needs of a diverse student population reflecting the integrated communities of South Orange and Maplewood. Dedicated to a multiple intelligence approach to learning, (Howard Gardner's theory of different learning styles), the faculty strive to find learning modes that work best for each individual child and to build on their strengths. The school serves as a district-wide resource for staff development. The school attracts similarly-minded families who appreciate the diversity. Seth Boyden has an excellent art and music program. And the fifth graders put on a spring musical each year. The PTA is very strong and active."

    "This school ranking is not reflective of the school. This school is exceptional and should be ranked 9.5 or 10. The leadership is awesome and it's shows in the staff as well."

    "Seth Boyden is a terrific elementary school. My two children have thrived there. All of their teachers have been wonderful- both classroom and specials teachers. There is a very strong feeling of community at the school. Parents are welcome and really add to the environment. Parents run a fall and spring Garden Detectives program and winter recess clubs, with clubs, such as knitting, drawing, and legos. Teachers teach the curriculum through thematic units that get the children excited about learning. Class performances, which include acting, movement, and music are common. There is a wonderful school garden. Last year, my kindergartner did a unit on Peter Rabbit, where they planted and grew a Peter Rabbit Garden. During the monthlong activity, they studied language arts, science, and math. It ended with a wonderful Peter Rabbit Picnic on a beautiful June day."

    "My son completed the 1st grade at Seth Boyden under Mrs. Bates, and boy what an improvement! He really likes learning and he tries very hard at learning new things. He's always quoting Mrs. Bates on what she had told them in class. I wish she could be his teacher all the way to the 5th grade, but I know there are plenty of excellent teachers at Seth Boyden."
