Epson
Teachers at Gantner Avenue School have already discovered the power that interactive technology can have in a classroom.   It is helping their students to learn more in a shorter space of time.  The technology helps disengaged students re-engage with their learning; it helps build confidence in the shy and is inspiring teachers to learn more and become even more effective in what they do.  It's all so seamless — kids stay focused with no downtime.  Interactive whiteboards are revolutionizing our classrooms and creating a better learning environment for our children.

Anti-Bullying

Please click here for the 2014-2015 Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act Grades.

Under the Commissioner's Program, the school grade is a raw score of data and the sum of all the ratings for all indicators within each core element on the School Self-Assessment (e.g., 65 of 78 points).  The maximum total score for a school is 78 points.  The school district's grade is an average of the total scores of all schools in the school district.  The department issued grade is not represented as a letter grade.  The NJ Department of Education is not issuing any associated value or ranking for the raw and average scores.  The raw and average scores reflect the school and school district's degree of compliance with the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act (ABR), as determined primarily through each school's self-assessment of its implementation of the ABR.
