This school is one of a kind I went to this school for 4th and 5th grade and I loved it. I thought the homeroom teacher's are great and the help you get is fantastic! For me it is very hard to find a school I like i have been in 8 + schools and im from Orlando FL and can i just tell you that FL SCHOOL'S ARE THE WORST ALL THEY CARE FOR IS THE F CAT BECAUSE THAT IS WHERE THAY GET THERE MONEY! But out of all of the school's I have been to this is the best one! Also I had Mrs. reisman for 5th grade math and all i can tell you is ask for her for every class you will never find a more sweet helpful teacher in your life and does it help that she is super fun too!!!!!!

I found that it was a bit to get use to but I think Cinnaminson is one of the best districts in Burlington County. Our district is trying to get the children ready for the state test. So far, my daughter being in third grade, is progressing well. I find it to be a bit challeging for me and my husband. But that's why we are there for our children too.

This is our first year at Rush and my child is having a very hard time adjusting to it. I don't see why the schools are broken down the way they are. I think the kids are to young to switch schools from 2nd to 3rd. Once at Rush the 3rd graders are now responsible for switching up to 4 classes a day. That is a lot for an 8 year old. ALSO...with new security policies in place it is very hard for a parent to get to know the teachers. We are no longer able to attend school parties during the day. Only room moms get this privilege. Many parents would love to help out at school. My work schedule allows me flexibility but I am no long allowed to come in to help. All in all the people that I have met have been wonderful!

Moved from Northeast Philly to Cinnaminson for the schools. Couldn't of asked for more. Absolutely nothing to complain about. Alot more difficult but thats what our kis need. I give Rush and the Middles School top honors.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
