My son is finishing up 3rd grade at Lake Tract and they have exceeded my expectations. His teachers have been excellent and I am confident in the education that he is getting.

My child is in the special education program. When he started this program he not only struggled in school, his self esteem was very low. I watched my child transform before my very eyes. He is able to read and do mathematics on his grade level and for that I am greatful. The special education teachers put a lot of hard work into my childs transformation and for that I am very greatful. I look forward to another great school year at the Lake Tract Elementary School.

My child just finished 2nd grade and had a great year! The 2nd grade teachers care about each individual student and made me feel like my child was a priority. Mrs Lutz is a great teacher and Lake Tract is blessed to have her! Hope the rest of Deptford Schools is just as wonderful.

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.
