Our school serves children in grades 6-8 in Voorhees Township, New Jersey, a suburban community located 12 miles east of Philadelphia.  The Voorhees Middle School opened its doors in 1973 and was known as the Upper Elementary School from 1973 to 1980.  In 1995, the building was expanded including the addition of classrooms, a cafeteria and mini-gymnasium.  Increased enrollment began in 2000 and the demands of regulations arising from the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act required additional classrooms at the Voorhees Middle School.  A building and renovation for future expansion referendum passed in 2000.  The addition of the “B” wing opened in 2003.Today, the school houses more than 1000 6th through 8th grade students and has over 100 staff members.  We are the sending middle school for the district’s four elementary schools. Our most important goal is to help every student reach their full potential to become life-long learners and contributing citizens of our surrounding community and world.
