School Notes:

  • Ability School is a private, secular school for pre-k through middle school located in Bergen County, New Jersey. For over a third of a century, our mission has been to assist students in becoming productive, highly motivated, self-paced learners who are able to take the knowledge gained in the classroom and translate it into action in the real world to good effect and success. 
  • The Ability School stresses a thorough grounding in the basics from which all future learning arises. Students achieve literacy both in written and verbal communication as reading, writing and language skills develop throughout the student’s schooling.  As well, students are expected to become proficient in math and attain an understanding and appreciation for science, the social sciences, the arts and life skills such as ethics and manners. The passing grade for academic requirements is 100%.

School Reviews

I can not recommend enough the wonderful program offered at Ability School. I am not aware of any other program where a child walks away with as much confidence in their ability to learn and study any subject. My daughter started at 3 1/2 and was reading by 4. She loves school! I would recommend Ability School to any parent who want a more personalized education for their child.
