Deptford Township Schools

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.

Chain of Command Information.

Dear Deptford Family,

One of the top goals of Deptford School District administration is to provide open and transparent lines of communication with all district stakeholders.

As there have been some changes in our district administrative positions, we would like to provide everyone with an updated Chain of Command chart.  If at any time you have a question, concern, or compliment to share, we ask that you please contact the first appropriate person within the chain.  In doing so, we can meet your needs in an efficient and professional manner.

We thank you in advance for your kind adherence to this policy and we look forward to working together to provide the best possible education for our scholars.

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.


Through a wide variety of activities we encourage our students to expand their knowledge and understanding of the world around them. Learning through new experience broadens horizons.


Our students are best served by high expectations, by going beyond basic skills, and using instructional time to engage students in problem-solving, critical thinking, and active learning
