School Reviews

  • Recommended September 20, 2013 - I attended Bayonne High School grades 9 through 11. My senior year, my family moved to Governors Island, New York. I attended Curtis high school and graduated from there. However, my years at Bayonne High School were invaluable. I learned so much and my education has served me well throughout the years. My education afforded me the opportunity to be gainfully employed throughout my working years. I am well versed in art, literature, language and business, thanks to all the great teachers at BHS. I was blessed to have attended this school. - Posted by Student/Alumni

The Parents’ Guide to Common Core

Since their inception, they have been adopted by 43 states. While much support has been given for the standards, many criticisms have emerged as well.
White Students are Now the Minority in U.S. Public Schools
Increasing birth rates among immigrant families from Asia and Central and South America, combined with lower birth rates among white families, means that for the first time in history, public school students in the United States are majority-minority. This shift in demographics poses difficulties for schools as they work to accommodate children of varying language abilities and socio-economic backgrounds.
