  • 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.

    Cherry Hill has been underfunded by the State for 30 years.

    The last successful bond referendum was in 1999 for $52m. Work from this bond lasted until 2005. The Board at that time knew there was a lot more to do. The next bond referendum vote in December 2018 did not pass.

    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.

    Garrison Architects and a diverse team of experts have identified $363M worth of work as part of a long-term Facilities Improvement Program that we are looking to fund with this Bond – including significant renovation and/or addition work in ALL 19 schools.

    Critical work (including safety, security, infrastructure, air quality and air conditioning, roofs, ADA, modernized classrooms, energy-efficient lighting, all-purpose rooms, and more) needs to be completed in our schools.

    Here are the proposed plans for Kilmer Elementary

  • 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.

    We believe…

    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.
