The Willingboro Township Public Schools is a comprehensive community public school district that serves students in pre-Kindergarten through twelfth grade from Willingboro Township, in Burlington County, New Jersey, United States.

As of the 2011-12 school year, the district's eight schools had an enrollment of 4,353 students and 327.0 classroom teachers (on an FTE basis), for a student–teacher ratio of 13.31:1.[1]

The district is classified by the New Jersey Department of Education as being in District Factor Group "DE", the fifth highest of eight groupings.
