Horrendous. Lengthy review. TDLR: This school is as bad as they get. Please look the other way when deciding whether or not to send your child to this middle school. Environment- Awful. I am an alumni for 2016-2017's 8th grade class. I didn't spend too much time in this school although. My mom was aware of the toxic environment (police constantly coming to the school, and full on fist fights breaking out for what felt like everyday) I often spent my time home (studying. Of course.) And then eventually moved schools, and then got homeschooled. (Which I feel was far better off.)Academics- Basic, I suppose. I can't exactly remember what was being taught back when I was still at the school, but things didn't really seem quite challenging. Homework was rarely assigned I am pretty sure. Teachers and Students-Students, as aforementioned, were very violent and toxic. Of course, not all of them, never all of them. Although bullying was an IMMENSE problem. One of my best friends suffered from bullying and one day while inside during Recess she told a teacher about the bullying. Absolutely NO action taken against it. Unsurprising.

I am so proud of the teachers in PS 40. My son loves Mrs. Sisk, she entertain the kids, get them ready for the NJ ASK she has confident in her students. She is always willing to put for on for her students to be winners. Mrs. Sisk contact parents as soon as their is a problem, she does not let it escalate. Mrs. Sisk wants the best for her students. The school principals and all other staff are very concern in all student learning and safety. I am so proud my school can find guidance, education, in this school. Mrs. Sisk is a great Mathematics Teacher never gives up in her students
