Senior: My experience at OLMA has been one of the best things that my family and I have ever done. Not only am I getting an amazing education but I am learning tools to help me when I am out of high school and move onto a higher education. The environment at OLMA is unlike any other. The all girls education is just so supportive and I don’t think there is a better word. You don’t go into a classroom and not hear girls chanting and encouraging each other to get the right answer or to keep trying because they are so close. The sports teams are up and coming. We get more and more girls coming who are amazing athletes everyday, and everyday we see our programs getting stronger and more exciting everyday as well. OLMA is a one of a kind school where the relationships here and the support systems are unreal. Making the choice to go to OLMA was and is the best decision my family or anyone’s family could ever make.

- 291 reviews
Freshman: Clearview High School has great opportunities, extensive courses, MANY sports/ activities to join, and an amazing school spirit. Despite these amazing things, the people in said school admittedly aren't that great. The teachers help people break out of their shells, but while some teachers cared for their students dearly, some were the exact opposite. And the student themselves are not very accepting of each other and there are plenty of examples of ostracizing (as well as fights, drama, and lack of seriousness). But besides that, the school's borderline wonderful.

- 213 reviews
Senior: Over the last four years, I have been lucky to attend Delsea Regional High School. Our district has implemented many different programs and activities to improve the quality of our school for the students and staff. They have many different clubs that are inclusive to everyone, such as the “Gay Straight Alliance club” and the “Christian Athletes club.” They also have an amazing education program, with tons of classes that introduce students to many different fields of learning. Along with this, the staff at Delsea is amazing overall. They strive to be inclusive and understanding, while still disciplining when needed. They never hesitate to take extra measures when it comes to helping students get the best education possible, and ensure that they feel as prepared as they can be for life after high school. Overall, our school may not be perfect, however I feel that there isn’t much more our staff and administration could do to improve our learning environment.

Alum: The teacher and administrators were extremely helpful and understanding when it came to academic and personal aspects. I felt supported and as if I was being prepared efficiently for my college education. The diversity also gave me a sense of cultural exposure. The only change I would suggest would to try and hire more teachers, to achieve a smaller class size. Therefore the students will get more individual attention for their education.

Senior: I am so appreciative that I was given the opportunity to attend Kingsway for both middle school and high school. My favorite memories were made here and I have also made many life long friends. The faculty is incredible, for they possess helpful and loving personalities and will do anything for a student in need. What I would like to see change is the scheduling. I believe in block scheduling because it allows students a heavier focus on fewer tasks at a time. It will improve grades and take the stress of having 6-8 classes per day.

- 118 reviews
Senior: Smaller class sizes (~200) create a tight sense of community within the school. Great opportunities in extracurricular, many successful and dedicated sports teams and the marching band is extremely successful and inclusive. Students are generally nice, but the small community makes it a very difficult school to transfer into. Smaller school size means less facilities and opportunities. EX: Only one gym, no orchestra- only concert band, no drama club or fall play- only spring musical.

Glassboro High School
#7 Best Public High Schools in Gloucester County
- Glassboro School District, NJ
- 116 reviews
Senior: Glassboro High School has been a place I have met many of best friends, discovered brand new interests, and grew as a person in their teens. I love my school for the many opportunities I have been given when it comes to my education, with an array of intelligent teachers who have put their passion and dedication into guiding me through my academic career. While Glassboro High School has helped me get involved in extra curricular activities like the tennis team, engineering club, and orchestra, I do believe that the quality of the curriculum and the engagement that is encouraged through both the students and the staff is what makes the school a special place. Despite all this, I wish to see Glassboro High School expand upon its course options. Funding more teachers so that the students can have more AP course options and more specialized subjects will ultimately only improve the child's preparation for college and their future in general, as well as helping them find their own passion.

Woodbury Junior/Senior High School
#8 Best Public High Schools in Gloucester County
- Woodbury City Public School District, NJ
- 58 reviews
Junior: Woodbury Junior/Senior high school is a great school because all the teachers I have met truly care for their students and will stay after as long as they can to help the students. In cases where neither the teacher or the student can arrange or meetup after school there is an advisory period called woodburyone where students can go to any class and receive the help they need for each class.This is just one reason why they are a great school. Another reason why Woodbury Junior/Senior high school is a good school is their 21st century program. Their 21st century program has multiple activities you can do, for example esports is an after school activity where students compete in tournaments against other students in online games so games like overwatch, rocket league and much more.

Pitman High School
#9 Best Public High Schools in Gloucester County
- Pitman Boro School District, NJ
- 41 reviews
Alum: Attending this school in this district was definitely a great experience. Every school will have it's pros and cons, but it is always worth the experience. Pitman is a small community, but prides itself in it's history, sports, education, community activities, and much more. It is also a walking district which allows a certain discipline that some students might not have. From grades K-12 I have had wonderful resources and opportunities to do what I enjoy and love. The community also encourages student's to branch out and be themselves in all they do. Is it frustrating being in a small community though? Well yes, sometimes. Being in a small, close community means everyone knows everyone and news (good or bad) spreads quickly, but in the end we stand for one another. It is all about the relationships in this town. If one is looking for a cute town that is safe, has great entertainment/activities, a great education, and more than this is the place for you.

- 174 reviews
Senior: Deptford Township High School was an interesting educational experience. The district is blessed to have so many great academies that interest and cover several topics of interest to high school students. The biomedical academy that is sponsored by PLTW paves a great path for students who intend to go into the biomedical area later down in life. Various students return from their endeavors after being involved in the program and show great gratitude for being in it because it helped to make the college process and career field much easier as compared to other students from other districts. The teachers are supportive if they like you, but some of them seem to always be having bad days and bring this into the workplace. It is deemed unprofessional to take out personal anger on students and should be seen as wrong. However, this district has a great support system that most definitely prepares individuals for life outside of highschool.

Williamstown High School
#12 Best Public High Schools in Gloucester County
- Monroe Township School District (Williamstown), NJ
- 325 reviews
Alum: Williamstown High School offers great educational opportunities. They have several (optional) 'academies', which can really help give students some pre-exposure to the field they may want to study in college. WHS also offers great AP and honors classes.
My biggest complaint is that they do not value the performing arts department. The marching band and indoor percussion programs have always been fantastic, but they have faced constant backlash from administration. Likewise, the theatre program is not as respected as it should be. It is important for students to have that outlet, and being involved with these programs can even improve academic performance. I believe it would benefit the school board to give a little more care to these activities.

Alum: Clayton High School was very welcoming. I enrolled in the school during my junior year of High School and it was nervewracking but the people in the school made me feel at home. The school itself tried their best to make me feel comfortable and allowed me the chance to thrive. I joined multiple clubs that they offered and expanded my academic horizon. This was a great school to go to!

Senior: Paulsboro High School is a small school, but big on school spirit. Not many people like Paulsboro, but we love our school, teachers and athletes. We have many talented athletes, but we are more than just athletes, we are scholars. Our teachers are they for us, support us and cheer us on, in the classroom,on the field/track/courts.
We have great teachers, with challenging classes. With smaller classes, the teachers are available when we may need help. With the teachers help we will ready for our next big adventure, college.
