About CHERRY HILL PUBLIC SCHOOLS

We are 19 schools. With an early childhood center, 12 elementary schools, 3 middle schools, 2 high schools, and an alternative high school program, we are the 12th largest school district in the state of New Jersey and one of the largest suburban districts. This year, we expect to top 11,800 students and our enrollments continue to grow - we've grown by about 2,000 students in the last 12 years. We are 1,400 dedicated and caring employees, including the 1,000+ teachers who are with our children six hours a day, 182 days a year. We are part of a community that has supported our efforts to lower class size, provide more technology, and become a leader in the standards and accountability initiatives. Our community has also supported the first comprehensive building improvement effort in more than 30 yearsâ?¦ The bond referendum approved by voters in March 1999 allowed us to address the most critical needs of our aging facilities, including new walls at East, a new water system at West, roof repairs at East, West, and Carusi, upgraded electrical systems and window replacements throughout the district, and improved ventilation systems at our two-story elementary schools. The bond also funded the addition of 52 elementary classrooms to accommodate growing enrollments and smaller class sizes. It provided for 29 new or renovated science labs at our middle and high schools, renovations for a third middle school, and renovations for the Barclay Early Childhood Center. And, the bond provided for a new auditorium at High School West. We continue to be recognized as one of the finest school districts in the area. In the past few years, we have celebrated a U.S. Department of Education Blue Ribbon School, two NJ Department of Education Star Schools, three Governor's Schools of Excellence, and five Best Practices Award Winners. Our SAT scores far exceed state and national averages. In 2005, our graduation rate was nearly 100% and more than 97% of graduates are continuing their education at two- or four-year colleges. Our drop-out rate is approaching zero. We are the first school district in the northeastern United States with authorized IB programs in grades K-12. We are the Cherry Hill Public Schools, where opportunities for student growth and learning extend beyond the classroom and the school day. At our high schools, we offer a wide array of interscholastic athletic programs as well as more than 65 extracurricular opportunities focused on vocal and instrumental music, drama, student government, publications, and academic, business, and ethnic culture clubs. Our three middle schools have more students than ever participating on A and B teams and hundreds more participating in music, student government, publications, drama, and peer leadership. And each year, students from all of the Cherry Hill Public Schools give back to the community through thousands of hours in community service. We are the Cherry Hill Public Schools, where taxpayers realize a great return on their educational investment.
