My two children spent the past year at Connors (after spending their early years at Wallace) and will enter 4th and 6th grades in Sept. Yes, it is an urban school, if by that you mean most of the kids are not white and live in the projects. My kids (who happen to be ethnically Chinese – adopted from Hong Kong) got a very friendly welcome – there was no bullying, like one hears about at some other schools. Their teachers were smart, creative and available. I could (and usually did) talk with them after school every day. My kids performed very well academically and did the extremely challenging Johns Hopkins Univ math program via computer. Of the 14 children in my daughter’s third-grade class, she and 6 others achieved advanced proficient (the top rating) on the state NJ Ask exam. I would be happy to put anyone in touch with parents (new to Hoboken) whose children just finished kindergarten at Connors. If you want more details, feel free to email me at sullivanmaur@hotmail.com.

I agree. I think Calabro isn’t forgotten, but is the best kept secret. My son’s in Calabro and he’s doing wonderfully. Calabro lost a lot of students last year because they had to move to temporary quarters until their school building was renovated. They moved back in this past school year and grew their numbers by about 50%. They did a great job with the renovation.

You get out of the school what you put in.

Calabro is excellent for K-5. It seems to be the forgotten school. For public schools to work, it takes an investment by the whole community: teachers, administrators, parents, students, etc. Any school is only going to be as good as the people who care about it.

You said it seemed like a normal inner city school.

Your statement says volumes. To give you the benefit of the doubt, what specifically are you expecting?

[quote comment=”89216″] I visited Wallace and was not impressed. It seemed like a normal inner city school. Did not go visit Connors, but as I said, how can it be worse than Wallace?[/quote]

I suggest you pull your head out of your ass.

I truly hope you enroll your child in private school.
