I don't think this is the case at Voorhees now, but teachers were really dedicated years ago to develop good learning skills, persistence, and determination to succeed in their students. Now I have a feeling they are just coming to work to get salary.

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.

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!

The teachers are very dedicated and the principal shows genuine concern for the children and the families.

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.

The teachers at the school really take and interest in their students. The only thing lacking is that there are not many after school activities for the children.

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.
