Long Valley Middle School
90 Best Public Middle Schools in New Jersey
- Washington Township School District (Long Valley), NJ
Senior: Long Valley Middle School, is very dear to my heart and important within my growth to becoming a man. The biggest takeaway that I can speak for is the social skills that I have learned coming from a class of 300 plus students and over 1,000 students in total between the grades of 6 and 8. This large environment allowed me to thrive with having smaller classes around 18 students while also being a larger school overall. I learned how to effectively to communicate with teachers and adults in general as the students were given more freedom than in the elementary schools which led to increased social and academic interaction between students and forming unbreakable friendships. The school overall was a perfect mix between nature and nurture allotting the students more freedom than given in the elementary schools while also developing them into fine young adults who could handle the social pressures along with the schoolwork that the high school would bring.

Roanoke Catholic School

- PK, K-12
Senior: Roanoke Catholic is a school that teaches students belong the classroom and prepares them for either college. In the past years, 100 percent of Catholic seniors have attended college and this year the seniors have received over 2.5 million in scholarships. I started Roanoke Catholic two years ago and it was a big change coming from public school. In public schools you could slide by without doing your homework, but at Roanoke Catholic all work is required and graded as a test grade. Roanoke Catholic does not let you fall through the cracks. I also must say the food is outstanding!!
One thing I really did not like were the uniforms. In public school you basically wore what you want, but not in private school. My first year the gentlemen had to wear a shirt and tie during the winter and in the summer a polo shirt with the school’s logo and khaki pants or shorts. This year they changed the dress code to where gentlemen could wear the polo shirt and khaki pants all year around.
