Saint Bartholomew School is a warm and friendly school that welcomes all people. From the academics to the varieties of extracurricular activities, the school is an active and amazing place to learn and grow. I love the teachers and staff who always live out the mission of Saint Bartholomew School "To love, educate, and inspire our children to live out the teachings of Jesus Christ". I'm grateful to be a student here at Saint Bartholomew School. The modern classes and upgraded gymnasium give us a reason to want to learn and engage in class. We use many programs such as Google Classrom and other learning programs. I highly suggest sending your child to St. Bart's.

A wonderful school. My daughter's teachers inspire her love of learning. The extracurricular activities really enhance the educational experience.

In September 2014, I switched my children (7th & 8th) from public school to St Bartholomew School in East Brunswick, NJ. I could not be more pleased, and my only regrets are that I should have done it sooner. I feel more confident that they are better prepared to face the challenges of high school. The teachers are friendly and kind and in a short period of time, they really have come to know my children strength and weakness and willing to help them. I would highly recommend this school.
