I have had children at Cherry Hill since 2004. Mrs. Hart (current principal) is excellent. My children have been in the dual language program and have learned a lot. We are looking forward to being able to use the whole school when the rebuild is complete. Until it is done the sack lunches three days per week and pizza two days per week are the best we can get so my kids mostly have sack lunch from home. Parents are always welcome to talk with the principal about concerns and are invited to join PTA and be involved with activities going on at the school. I have been able to meet with teachers to address concerns about my children and have found most of the teachers able to work with me and my kids. I have also interacted with teachers who do not teach my kids. Some years I have visited every classroom some and I have been delighted to see the positive learning atmosphere created in each room.

No impressed with CherryHill. I'm a mother of 5 and 3 attend. The bullying issue has to stop. They have rules to try to stop it but i don't think they are doing enough. As far as I'm concerned they need more intervention, motivational speakers and much more to stop this cycle of bad behavior. The Spanish Emersion for 1st grade program was a joke trying to figure out the homework(very disorganized) and good thing I took Spanish in junior high. Not to mention way too much homework for a 1st grader. I'm more displease of how unorganized the homework packet is. Numers on papers didn't match the guide. The lunches are the worst unfortunately.i really have been trying to be patient with this school. But it seems to always let me down too many times.

I just finished my years at Cherry Hill, and it has been the best experience of my life! The teachers there are amazing, and Mrs. Hart the principal, recieves a A+++++++++!!!! She has taught us how to dream big, and I hope she stays as principal for many years to come.

I have had 10 children attend Cherry Hill Elementary so far. Four of them have been in the ALL program. My experience has been very positive. The respect for authority of the kids at Cherry Hill exceeds what I have seen at other schools. The difference is apparent as the kids go on to junior high. My four kids who have graduated from high school all graduated with a significant number of advanced placement credits. I have found that the teaching at Cherry Hill prepared them to enter and be successful in the advanced placement classes in high school. My daughter recently graduated from college and is how teaching Junior High. She mentioned that many times in college other students would ask her how she knew so much. Many of the things the students were referring to were things she learned as a student at Cherry Hill.

My child is in first grade at cherry hill and I think that the teachers and staff there do a wonderful job. I volunteer in her class and the teacher does a great job of controlling the class. Her kindergarten teacher last year was one of the best teachers I have ever seen. The stamp out bully program is also an effective program.

I have had the opportunity to substitute at Cherry Hill elementary. I also have a daughter who goes there and now she is in the third grade. My two older children a boy and a girl went there too. I would say Cherry Hill is an excellent school. I can't complain about anything in that school. The teachers are excellent and the staff is excellent too. i don't agree with the first person who says that the teachers don't care about the students. They do care. It all depends on how well you educate your children at home also. My children never had any problems at the school, the teachers never complained about them. Like I mentioned above, I have substituted there and I know it is an excellent school.

One teacher can make the difference. My child is in the A.L.L. program at Cherry Hill. Her 6th grade experience will stand out as the point at which she began to make a personal investment in her academic career. My child goes to this school only for A.L.L. I have no opinion on the rest of the faculty. I've not had the best experiences with the principal, although I'm certain she cares very much for those students in her boundaries. I've been very involved in my elementary school for more than 10 years. If you don't like things, get involved. Let the teachers and principal know that you care and that you are watching. Don't stand to the side and complain--that's too easy. Everyone can do something constructive. At the very least, demand respectful and responsible behavior from your child.

This school, along with the entire Alpine school distict, does nothing for the students who excel. The only thing offered is A.L.L. for a small number of 5th and 6th graders. At Cherry Hill there is absolutely no discipline for terribly behaved children. Children can beat up other kids, disrupt the classroom, or do anything they please without any consequence. The majority of teachers are BORING. the above-average students are expected to just sit silently after completing their work, and the teachers can't be bothered with providing them with anything else to do while they wait for the other students to complete their work. The entire class is taught to the lowest common denominator instead of getting extra help or tutoring for the slowest/most challenged students.
