Investing in our Schools.
Cherry Hill is the 11th largest school district in New Jersey, and one of the largest here in South Jersey. We have 19 separate schools totaling 1.7 million square feet that span 354 acres. Of our 19 schools the newest was built in 1970. We have 1,696 professional staff and a student body of 10,760 in grades K-12. Our students speak 72 different languages at home. Currently we have a 16% free/reduced lunch rate and a 19% special education classification rate.
To date, Board of Education members, Garrison Architects and District Administrators have presented the District improvement plan at over 30 meetings to schools and community groups.

Becoming a National School of Character
Character.org recognizes schools and districts that implement the rigorous standards of our 11 Principles Framework for Schools: A Guide to Cultivating a Culture of Character.
Schools of Character serve as an exemplary model for all schools across the United States and around the world.
Character reveals our common humanity and the universal core values that transcend religious, cultural, and ethnic differences.
Character is goodness-in-action
We envision a future where honest, trustworthy, respectful people treat others as they want to be treated.
Character needs to be taught, caught, and sought
Especially during adolescence, young people should be encouraged to form their own moral compass, based on timeless principles.
