Central Jersey College Prep Charter School Reviews

The interactions between the teachers/administration and the students need to improve. There are some teachers that are okay and all, but other times they will suspend you for the simplest things. Especially the administration; they need to fix up their interactions with the students as well. This school often changes and it is practically impossible to plan ahead because the administration can almost never make up their mind and they never tell students what they are planning on doing until they actually do it.

I arrived in 2009 as a seventh grader, and graduated in 2015. I really love how multicultural and accepting the school is. My graduating class was only 34 and although it was very small we all grew very close. The teachers are wonderful and you can tell they truly care for the students. The only thing I would say that needs some change is the after-school activities and better organized sports.
This school is essentially run by a person who gives no respect to parents, never visits classrooms, and stays to himself. Moreover, he never pays attention to what is going on and barely is in his office. Additionally, when he is in his office his door is closed and you cannot speak to him. Because of him more teachers are leaving as the time goes on.
