Great school with fantastic principal and teachers

This school is run down and old... For the amount of Tax charged in Old Tappan, the schools supply nothing! The parents have to work so hard to give the school everything it needs... Fund raising, donations, etc... The principal needs to retire.. and a younger principal needs to implement new ideas to revamp the whole system.

I am fortunate to have 3 children complete TBD. I consider my kids quite normal. Their learning abilities are better than average but probably not exceptional, gifted or genius levels. However, on state testing, they all tested well above proficient levels. I attribute my kids' success to the education received at TBD.

Small school with a lack of creative programs and poor administrative leadership. We moved into town this year from another local school district and are so disappointed in the curriculum which is almost a year behind what they children were exposed to last year. The principal was recently hired from within and does not have authority over the staff. She spends significant time reprimanding students for walking too fast or talking to loud; it reminds me of an old style private school that's intolerant of children. Sad but we made the wrong choice moving here.
