This school is rigid and unable to follow even the most basic educational plan. Top down the administration is not interested in educating every child- only the superstars. If you have the right last name you are golden.

My school is Hammonton middle school. My child is unfortunately a sixth grader at the middle school. I've had consistent problems with communication as I am my child's parent of alternative residence. (This means I have joint custody by he lives with the other parent). I've have been actively excluded from meetings with the child study team and then treated as a criminal when I call the school out on their behavior. The school district that I am living in is one of the best in the country and it is frustrating watching such a horrid and incompetent school district exclude me, the only parent that communicates with the teachers and pays thousands of dollars in private tutoring just to keep my child at grade level. If you are a young family looking to move into this school district, RUN!!!! There are affordable home elsewhere with much better schools. There are some bright spots with individual teachers, but as with any private or public organization that is toxic, I'm sure those teachers will not last.
