Really good district for children and education. Family friendly town, and the environment is enjoyable. I would suggest only that the township offer more opportunities for the children to get out of the house and meet others. The recreational center isn't used often. Also, it would be appreciated if they offered a variety of sports teams for children to participate in for a small price.

I have truly enjoyed my time living in Gloucester Township. From my time attending Ann A. Mullen Middle School, to attending Timber Creek High School, I can honestly the township has catered to all of my academic and safety needs. The police officers are friendly, the community is close-knit, and we all enjoy each other's company.
The town is very diverse with lots of town spirit. There has been a lot of town growth especially with the addition of the new premium outlets. There are many sports teams and youth groups to choose to participate in at a young age. Mainstage performing arts center is another highlight of the town. The high schools could be much improved upon as the
Non advanced placement classes are not up to very high standards.
The high schools are near the bottom of the states list for education.
During my high school experience, I did not find many teachers who seemed to care or inspire me and I did not feel many opportunities were available if I did not belong to certain cliques. This is a larger community than most and has some pros and cons.
