The Old Turnpike School currently houses approximately 375 students enrolled in grades five through eight. The original building was completed in 1968 and there have been several significant additions and upgrades to the school during the years it has been in operation. The most recent upgrade was completed during the summer of 2011.
Our students are organized in a departmentalized schedule that allows students to be taught by subject area specialists for each area within the curriculum. All of the teachers are "Highly Qualified" in their subject area and classrooms are equipped, supplied and decorated to increase interest and enhance the learning experience for the students. Our professional staff is provided with regular training to enhance their skills and help keep the entire faculty up-to-date with current and proven techniques and approaches to middle level educational strategies. The Tewksbury Township School District also encourages and supports staff efforts to continue to grow and improve through participation in graduate programs. All of these long-term investments have resulted in high levels of academic performance by the students in a school culture that value and promote excellence in all areas.
