New Public Statement:
Deptford Township School District consists of six early childhood/elementary schools, a middle school, a high school, and a special needs school to meet the needs of over 4,400 students. It is the third largest educational system in Gloucester County, and is thoroughly modern in its use of technology to enhance the educational process.
The curriculum provides a solid program of general education with learning opportunities ranging from special services for special needs children to gifted and talented courses for enrichment. A demanding core curriculum is supplemented with art, music, and physical education, and rich elective program encourages student choices. This comprehensive educational program results in Deptford Township students scoring above the state and national norms on standardized tests.
Our greatest challenges lie in closing the achievement gap for our special education and minority students, providing for the projected growth in student enrollment, and working to increase parent support.
Our students are encouraged to take intellectual risks in an environment that encourages intellectual exploration, creative thinking, and an open exchange of ideas.
Our athletic programs encourage students to achieve excellence while committed to a values-based philosophy of sport which emphasizes personal growth and cooperation.

The following is vital information regarding NJ State Graduation Assessment Requirements:
Students graduating as members of the classes of 2017 through 2019 can meet graduation assessment requirements through a variety of ways, including:
There are some significant changes starting with our current freshmen, the class of 2020. The class of 2020 can demonstrate graduation assessment proficiency through the same alternative means as those in the classes of 2017-2019, provided that students in the class of 2020 take ALL PARCC assessments associated with the high school level courses for which they are enrolled. If students/families for the class of 2020 plan on refusing to take the PARCC assessment, they will not be able to utilize alternative assessments to meet the high school graduation assessment requirement. The students that refuse will have to rely on passing one of the PARCC assessments in ELA and Math to earn their high school diploma.
For the class of 2021(current 8th graders), students must pass the PARCC Algebra I and PARCC ELA 10 Assessments to receive their High School Diploma. Failure to do so would result in students having to demonstrate assessment proficiency by meeting the criteria of the portfolio appeals process. The portfolio appeals process can only be utilized if students have taken all PARCC assessments for which they have been enrolled during their high school career. Again, students in the class of 2021 must pass PARCC Algebra I and PARCC ELA 10. No other testing alternatives (e.g. SAT, ACT, PSAT, ASVAB) can be utilized except for the portfolio appeals process.
Please visit the high school website and click on the link under school announcements titled “State Testing Requirements for Graduation” for a complete breakdown of scores and requirements needed for each graduating class.
We are looking forward to all students participating and achieving high success with state testing!
