"Couldn't have asked for a better school that Mt Prospect for my son. The teachers, principal, administration, every thing about the school beats my expectations."

"We have two children attending Mt. Prospect. The quality of the school, staff, and administration is unmatched. They go above and beyond and take the time to insure that our children are supported in every way to reach there full potential. I do not normally write reviews but I was simply outraged at the one star negative comment posted which does not reflect any of our personal experiences.”

"We moved to Basking Ridge few months ago and Mount Prospect is everything we expected and a bit more! Mount Prospect has all the ingredients for a successful school -- Involved and dedicated Principal/Staff, Great teachers, State of the art facility, Excellent learning environment and a very competitive batch of students. We are very happy with the school."

"William Annin is highly achieving and competitive in academics. The school's curriculum is challenging and I feel that it is more advanced than other schools in the area. The staff are amazing and the school only has the best teachers. I love the fact that William Annin has far more quality extracurricular/technical arts/STEM classes than any other school in the area...Even 8th grade Geometry! There is a wide variety of clubs and sports to choose from. On the other hand, the older parts of the facility could be updated because there are no screens on the windows and I've witnessed items fall out of them. Also, most older classrooms are lacking air conditioning, but I think they're working on bringing a HVAC system for the entire building. Half of the food in the cafeteria is good, and the other half is just weird. Not many students have "Annin Pride" because they believe some of the rules are too strict."

"WAMS is a fantastic school that exposes you to a lot of different thing both academically and culturally. The teachers, guidance counselors, & entire faculty are amazing!

"Ridge High School is one of the best schools in New Jersey, students graduate very prepared to start college. Students work hard to graduate with a high GPA. Students are very dedicated and try to do more than just homework. They do lots of research and use both in school resources as well as private. The school has activities all year round such conferences, fairs, sports games and different clubs the students participate in. Parents in the school district are very involved with the school and keep a good communication with teachers. The school building is well located surrounded by other important town departments such the town hall and the board of education. The town is safe. I am happy I attend Ridge High School, I feel prepared to start the next journey in my life which is to start college next year."

"A good school with amazing teachers. Ridge challenges their students to the limit and the teachers and staff work hard to provide the best for the students. AP Classes prep the students fairly well for the AP tests in May."

"Upon researching numerous schools through New Jersey we chose Far Hills Country Day School for its balance between academics and character development. We feel the vision and values of Far Hills are in line with what we believe to be a truly well rounded education. We love seeing our children come home happy and excited. We love that our children's academic and emotional needs are individually met. Every teacher we have met has shown an exceptional sense of love for FH. They all take a lot of pride in how they contribute to making FH a great school. There is a feeling of belonging and unity at each of the many events. There is no concern of what grade your child is in, we are all in this together, striving to better our children. There is a joint effort with FHCDS and their families to continually improve upon the school. Staff, students, and families have a genuine love for the school." 

"Far Hills has always developed the individual child and creates an environment that promotes the joy of learning. My children love being here and the teachers are outstanding! This is an amazing environment where children flourish."
