I find Voorhees High School to be a great school with staff that genuinely care about their students. I have a son with ADHD and an IEP. This staff has and is sticking by my son through all his obstacles and hard times. I'm glad to have my son in such a top notch school with dedicated, caring and professional staff. During the summer he attended one of the sports camp and received the same caring support with the summer staff. Thank you Voorhees High School Staff for your unwavering support and dedication to the overall wellbeing of your students and in particular my son.

I got comment here as I attended this school system in the 60s ad 70s and now have chosen to send my kids here. I moved around the country quite a bit but landed back here in Hunterdon. I will tell you that Voorhees (as well as North) is without a doubt, the best school system that I have seen. Sure there are problems, but our problems aren't as bad as others. In order to judge a school system, one should also look to see where alumni are. I have been to plenty of reunions and can tell you that we are phenomenally successful. Sure, there are losers but we have less than most.

Most teachers are at this school for the paycheck. Unless you are an honors or AP student your education is way below average. Drugs are running rampant and they try to keep it quiet. Don't go here if you don't have to.

I'm graduating from this school this year, and I would give it a 75/100. I experienced a lot of problems with the guidance department (regarding my 504 and accommodations) Many of the teachers are great, except for maybe a handful that are unreasonable. The only main problem is the way they do attendance. You only get about 5 days for un excused absences. And if you get food poisoning, you just lost 3 days of that. That is the only big issue I have.

Great school with different levels and paths of study. Teachers are engaging and extra-curricular activities and sports are great fun.

I had a child graduate there a while back and was very impressed with his teachers and guidance staff for staying with him until he graduated. Recently it has seemed a little more tolerance for differences could be needed, but the adults must lead the way and set the example in acceptance of all, regardless of being different, or outside the 'norm'. I think Voorhees will continue to evolve and stay a good, solid educational experience with plenty of activities to keep a teen engaged in learning.

I have had two children graduate from this school. One was in special (ed) services. I can't say enough about the quality of the special services staff. They consistently put the needs of my child first and went above and beyond to make sure that he succeeded. As my other child was on the other end of the academic spectrum , I was impressed with the quality of the honors program. The guidance staff did an excellent job in helping her navigate the college application process. In terms of ethnic diversity; yes, the majority of the students are white. Despite tremendous diversity in terms of family wealth, students from different towns seem to mix and there is no emphasis on having the 'right' clothes. Many students are engaged politically and in world events. My only complaint has to do with the administration, which offers parents little flexibility on policies (absences, detentions).

I beg to differ about the statement of our red neck attitde. Although Voorhees Regional High School in dominated by caucasions, that would not place our mind as a whole to be red necks. we are very open minded and whoever wrote that was obviously not part of this great scholastic experience. Voorhees is very open minded.

As the mother of a freshman, I am very impressed with the academic & extra-curricular programs. Freshmen are made to feel very welcome and Voorhees has a wonderful orientation program which guarantees freshmen and new students do not feel lost or adrift. So far, it has been a wonderful experience for my child.

Educationally this school is wonderful. Racially the students of this school lack open mindedness. Very red neck attitudes.

Hello all, I was student at Voorhees High School from 98-02. Overall, it was a great experience. The teachers were dedicated, but sometimes lacking, and there is almost no diversity. Other than that, there are plenty of activities and the history department was great!
