My children enjoyed their first year at Voorhees. They had many fun activities for both students and families throughout the school year. It was great to see them want to go to school every morning! The school is small compared to most, so they were able to make close friendships quickly. From a teacher's perspective, their reading, writing and math is where its supposed to be. In fact, they continue to impress me from time to time. We are looking forward to a new school year at Voorhees!

Teacher effectiveness: Agree


- a parent
Anytime I had a question or concern the teachers responded to my emails quickly and to my satisfaction.


Amount of homework: Agree


- a parent
For my children, the amount of homework given was just right. Too much homework would have taken time way from physical activities, which they also need to stay healthy.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a parent
Part of the curriculum at Voorhees is set aside to teach students about character and how to treat others.

The school has definitely deteriorated over the years since my older child went there. Teachers do not care as much about the kids, they are not as dedicated, and quality of education gone down tremendously. Instead of bringing children to the level of the strongest students, they bring smart kids down to make the weak students feel good about themselves. I guess this is what "No child left behind" is about in Voorhees terms.


Develops character: Strongly disagree

Unless you are a PTA committee mom milling around the school all day, your child will not be treated with fairness, even if he/she is getting all A'a and B's and participating actively in school's life. This was the case with both of my kids at Voorhees and left me feeling very bitter about this school. Oh, and be prepared being "stamped" with "special needs" child, if you kid is quiet, reserved, and not in the teachers face all the time. Had to fight for my little introvert A-B student not to be thrown into special ed class!

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.
