Locals love the Watchung Borough Public Schools, and Bayberry Elementary School was rated #202 out of 1,404 Public Elementary Schools in New Jersey by Niche.com's 2018 Best Schools List.

"[Bayberry Elementary school] is a great school, with very friendly teachers and staff. My son has been studying in this school from past 1 year and he really enjoys going to school every day. The teaching methodologies and resources used by the teachers is excellent. It is very modern and technology oriented. I like the way they incorporate technology in day to day teaching. I also like their evaluation process and they give very constructive feedback which helps parents to know areas where their kid needs improvement or areas where their kids need more encouragement. All in all a great school!!!"

"Great School very well managed. We have our son in the kindergarten program and we especially moved to Watchung for this School.” 

"Bayberry School took on two little boys who were truly a mess from being in a bad foster home. The couldn't read, write or speak properly. Now it was not one boy it was two boys. They are now getting B's and A's in a matter of one year."

"I was a student here and had a fantastic experience. The staff was warm, caring and made sure to pay special attention if you needed some extra help. I will always remember Valley View fondly and am still in touch with the friends that I made attending."

"The school has one of the best collections of teachers who, above all else, care deeply about each and every student. I am proud to have had such wonderful teachers, and cooperating students as well, during my time at WHRHS."

"Lots of options beyond core requirements with opportunities to switch classes before the start of the semester. Guidance counselors are a big help selecting classes."

"The Giving Nest is a wonderful nurturing pre-school to prepare my child for Kindergarten. I would recommend the Giving Nest to everyone!"

"My daughter graduated last year from the Giving Nest, and my son is currently enrolled there. There are no words that can express how great that preschool is. Kids enter Kindergarten so well prepared, both educationally and emotionally. I would highly recommend this preschool. I hope that one day the Giving Nest will expand to become a PreK to 5th grade."

"My daughter is happy to be a student at the mount. The curriculum is challenging and the faculty and staff have been open and receptive."
