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 2008-09 school year, the district's eight schools had an enrollment of 4,490 students and 374.2 classroom teachers (on an FTE basis), for a student–teacher ratio of 12.0.[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. District Factor Groups organize districts statewide to allow comparison by common socioeconomic characteristics of the local districts. From lowest socioeconomic status to highest, the categories are A, B, CD, DE, FG, GH, I and J.[3]

Awards and recognition[edit]

For the 2005-06 school year, Garfield East Elementary School was one of 22 schools statewide selected as Governor's School of Excellence Winners, an award given to schools that have demonstrated significant academic improvement over the previous two academic years.[4]

Schools[edit]

Schools in the district (with 2008-09 enrollment data from the National Center for Education Statistics[5]) are:

Elementary Schools (PreK-5)

Middle School (6-8)

High School (9-12)

The S.W. Bookbinder (356 students), J.A. McGinley (383) and Martin Luther King Jr. (295) Elementary Schools were closed at the end of the 2005-06 school year as part of an effort to save about $3.7 million, through the reduction of 70 staff members and class sizes increased to as many as 28 at the five remaining elementary schools. The cuts were needed to fill a two-year budget deficit of nearly $10 million.[6]

Administration[edit]

Core members of the district's administration are:[7]

  • Dr. Ronald G. Taylor, Superintendent[8]
