Palisades Park Board of Education Reviews

2 reviews
I am an alumni of the Palisades Park School district. I am also currently a parent of 2 children that attend the Jr. Sr. High School. From the time that I attended school and now that my children have been attemding the same school, it is incredible to see how far the school district has decreased in every aspect overall. From academics to communication, technology, sports, diversity, culture, interaction and bonding with the students, tutoring, special needs, etc. teaching used to be about caring amd education first amd foremost, now it has become all about contracts and paychecks. If you’re out of contract, you’re out that door and forget about teaching because hey.....I’m not getting my raise!!!!! Therefore, you certainly do not deserve my attention, my knowledge or an education! Teacher’s honestly used to have a passion for molding young minds.
