A Message from the Superintendent
The administration and staff of Gloucester Township Public Schools are ready to deliver what is hoped to be another successful school year.
Our middle school Chromebook Initiative has now expanded into a Grade 4 through Grade 8 program.
Our Full Day Kindergarten program is excited to commence the second year of an outstanding program which prepares our young learners academically, socially, and emotionally for 1st grade. It is our belief that Full Day Kindergarten represents an essential foundation which allows all students to experience a successful transition to formal schooling.
I am confident that the district is prepared to deliver an outstanding year. If at any time you have an issue that is not receiving an appropriate response, please contact my office.
