Tenafly Public Schools Reviews

TPS has a great culture - teachers and administrators are incredibly nurturing, actively encouraging students to speak up in class and drive their own learning. This support network makes it easy to succeed if you are determined, but, more importantly, it makes going to class enjoyable. Though the atmosphere can be high-pressure at times, I never found it overwhelming. Students and teachers tended to have fun in class, constantly joking with one another. I loved my experience in the Tenafly public school system, but I think it really is what you make of it - many students did go on to attend pedigree colleges. The worst thing about the TPS network is the glaring lack of demographic diversity.

Better than a private school. Switched kids from private to Tenafly public, best decision. Kids are well behaved, polite and very supportive of their fellow students. Teachers and staff are friendly, helpful and easy to communicate with.
Tenafly is a wonderful town for education, but unfortunately the schools are among the most stressful in terms of workload and worst for bullying in the Bergen County area. It is tough enough to concentrate on school work and sports, but even tougher so when the harassment and drama from the student body is constant.
