You can''t take these scores listed and say Pitman schools are not top notch. I have taught in local schools in the area and the distractions at these schools greatly interferes with the learning. And because of the way test scores are shown a Good district like Pitman suffers. Why, because ALL students scores are accurate where as many schools in the area do NOT list all scores. Teachers in these schools are disgusted by bad behavior from their students. Pitman kids are super class acts. Being HONEST.
