We have a wonderful principal(this will be her third year) and from day one she was involved, welcoming and warm. She makes it a point to know every kids name and as many parents as she can. The teachers ar wonderful and easy to talk to. We also have an amazing PTA that puts together so many fun things for the kids and their families. This is definitely Old Bridges' 'little secret' school.
We moved from Staten Island and our daughter started attending Voorhees in the 2nd grade. So far (after 4+ months), we can only see good things. This is a small, involved, caring school. Our daughter's teacher is Wonderful! She really seems to be dedicated and loves what she does. She made our daughter feel welcome and comfortable since day one. They sometimes break down the class into smaller groups for math, or reading, etc., so if your child is lacking or advanced, they move ahead very nicely. Extra classes like speech, actually concentrate on your child's specific speech needs-very unlike NY. Every day she has a 'special' - gym, arts and crafts, music, spanish, etc. There has been poem readings, costume parades, bingo night bringing the parents and kids together for fun. My girlfriend also moved here from SI and loves the school. She likes the before and after school program.
