The school is situated by a beutiful park and gives impression of a welcoming environment. However, administration in the school is horrid - comparing to LI school district, Memorial school is not parent oriented and not safe. Getting a meeting with a teacher or a vice priciple is virtualy impossible - they'll brush you off, for weeks / months. With Fair Lawn taxes as high as they are, we expected a much more friendly environment.
