Readington Middle School Ratings & Reviews
Since the new principal started in 2013, the school schedule has changed dramatically with nine (9) 43 minute classes each school day. The students are given a 20.5 minute lunch, which does not allow enough time to go through the lunch line and have time to eat. There is only a 2 min. break between classes, so the children have to literally run to class to try to be on time. If the next class is on the other side of the school, the student has no chance of being on time. Then the students are given threats of detention if they are late. I think its cruel to drive kids like cattle, then penalize them for not being able to do the impossible. I timed my child's walk from point A to Point B and it took me 3.75 mins walking. My child said he never walks to class; he has to run. This environment is very unsafe and does not promote the well being of children, especially with the shortened lunch period. I brought my concerns to the principal, but they were ignored.
Great school for bright students. The enrichment (G&T) program is excellent and integrated into the schedule (it's not a pull-out program, like in earlier grades, which sometimes causes scheduling conflicts). Math program has received a lot of attention and now gives several classes of high performing students a chance to advance 2 years ahead by 8th grade, with the majority of kids getting at least 1 year ahead. Music program is great, the band and orchestra are really impressive. Taxes are annoyingly high, but that issue seems to come from a lack of revenue sources, and not run-away school spending.
i have been a student here for 2 years now, and most of the time i can agree that the school is very exceptional! Most of the teachers are extremely kind and willing to make learning a fun environment!
i have been a student at this school for a year and a half, i had to move and the other school simply did not compare! the staff is always there with passion in the teaching and the students are friendly and they always are trying to make new friends ( 6th grade was my first year in this school district). there is always a warm and friendly environment at Readington Middle School
This school has newly set up an advanced Gifted and Talented system which encourages the excel of learning. It has just recieved a new principal who is getting used to the surroundings of the school. I see great oppurtunities with her. Readington Middle School has also recently brought their mathematics program up to date. This school is excellent.
