Both my children attended Cherry Hill school district. As well as my husband and myself. We are very pleased with the overall school district. They take very good care of the children in school. All our questions and needs were addressed immediately and resolved. The schools are older schools but kept well. Neither of my children had any issues regarding bulling, fighting with other children. Both my children also participated in sports during their school year. The programs are very well organized, offer several opportunities to play and participate. The teams are very dedicated and move to championship levels. The school system is diverse and has several cultural clubs to participate in. The food in the cafeteria is ok, both my children packed lunch as well as purchased.The Transportation system is very accommodating and safe. They run buses on both sides of cherry hill if you choose to attend school on opposite side of town.Overall I am very pleased with the school system.

Cherry Hill is an amazing place to grow up. The community is very diverse. Going to Cherry Hill schools since Kindergarten, it has shown to be the most wonderful experience. However, once getting to high school there seems to be a difference between Cherry Hill East and West. West from what I have heard from my friends there is more laid-back with their strictness on academics and AP and Honors classes aren't as intense compared to East. At East, many people think lower of people not in an AP or Honors class which isn't good. However, everyone is very nice besides that and everyone is involved in various clubs and sports which makes it easy to make friends. However, overall school spirit isn't the best compared to West.
Very friendly, accepting to all families and students, great faculty. This district is one of the larger school districts in the region. The academics are very high and many students attend school in Cherry Hill because of the great academic challenges and the many accomplishments and accolades associated with the Cherry Hill Community. This district takes pride in their schools, staff and students.
