The Voorhees Township Public Schools have a proud tradition of excellence. Our curriculum, based on the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards, provides challenging expectations and engaging experiences for all students. Our philosophy is based on the concept that all students can achieve at high levels. We recognize that a strong education is the key which allows our students to fully participate in our society.
We are continually examining our curriculum to determine areas of improvement. One goal is to make curriculum expectations clear to everyoneteachers, students, and parents. We also want to continue to develop meaningful assessments to evaluate student progress toward our curriculum expectations. An effective way to increase student achievement is to find ways to share promising instructional practices among our teachers.
Our excellent teaching staff is the backbone of the Voorhees Township Public Schools. Teachers are dedicated to making sure that all students succeed. Many teachers have been and will continue to be involved in curriculum development efforts. Our veteran teachers pass on the benefit of their experience both informally and through a formal mentoring program.
When you consider the fine teaching staff, an excellent support staff, eager students, and enthusiastic, involved parents, you can see why we are so proud of our school system. We will continue to strive for excellence as we build on the successful experiences of the past.
