Garfield East Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

Communicating with the teachers (two) was a mess, they used a combination of notes home, email, a website and an app but, weren't consistent. Homework was sometimes posted on the website but, sometimes missing- my 3rd grader doesn't have regular computer access anyway so this website was rather inappropriate for the grade she teaches. He came home with an obscene amount of homework- 10 PAGES IN A SINGLE NIGHT for a third grader is insane- and then lost a quarter of his recess because my husband and I put an end to homework at 9PM with a note to the teacher explaining such. In addition to no band, chorus or other extracurricular-type activities, they don't have so much as a library- just minimal collections of books in each classroom. My son also complained that the gym is the size of his bedroom (he has a large bedroom so that's quite possible) and that the art teacher was mean and frequently yelled at the kids for talking. If you can't teach children without yelling, you have no business working with children! It's no secret that public school kids tend to be more unruly and undisciplined but, if you can't find ways to quiet a classroom without yelling, you're clearly doing something wrong! With advanced notice, I took him out of school for a couple of hours to tour a private school and when my husband took him back to school, he got the third degree about a doctor's note by the always-arrogant office staff who treat you as if they own your child and are inconvenienced by your presence! He was removed that day! When I went back to officially withdraw him from the school, I was treated like a leper by whom they were personally offended. If you have any option, I would never recommend sending a child to this school! As a former homeschooler, I stand by homeschooling being the best option when possible but, do now agree that there are seasons of life when it doesn't work out as planned. Thank God for private school and tuition assistance!

My child is a student at GE and has been here since Pre-K year. My child has had much success academically and that is due to the support of the caring staff and administration. Every school has it's problems and GE is no exception. I would like to see more parent participation rather than complaints. We as a community need to work together with the schools and the district to rise above. A first step would be to pariticapte in school events, attending School Board Meetings, and voting for the School Budgets. It's sad to see so much negative talk and never any action. I challenge all parents, staff, and other community members to do your part to help GE strive to be a shining star in not only Willingboro, but the state of New Jersey!

My child is currently in the 4th grade at GE. When she began kindergarten and first grade I thought the teachers did a great job but I began to see a lack in both effort and care in the teachers. My daughter has suffered and is behind. I feel like I must struggle to get a 2nd job to pay for a private education or move to a town with a better school system. I feel that the teachers dont care if my child makes it or not. I am left with the responsibilty of teaching my child what they briefly review in class. I now understand the bad stories I have heard about the Willingboro School System. If you have the option dont move here or send your child to private school so they dont have to play catch up.

Garfield East has gone down hill since my daughter first started to attend in pre-school. She's now in second grade and I've had numerous problems with this school. They've changed hands 3 times since she's attended and this is their third principle. Children's academic progress is not a focus of this school. However, children with behavioral issues get the attention while students that are doing well academically suffer.

My children have attended GE for three years now. I continue to be impressed with the level of dedication of the staff. The academic program continues be impressive. The leadership of the current principal is exceptional, she can regularly be found greeting students and monitoring classes. She is always helpful and I know that my children are in a safe learning environment.
