    Our family has had a wonderful experience in the Florence Public School District! We have 3 daughters in the school system and have always had outstanding teachers. Our children are involved in both the township sports teams and the school provided sports teams . The High School has a fantastic music program led by Ann Croley and Christian Reynolds we have a marching band a choir an orchestra and a "house band" that plays all the back up music for the performing arts programs. There is a Spring Musical a Fine Arts Night and a Variety Show in both the High School and Middle School. The middle school students taking instrument lessons are invited to perform with the marching band at competitions parades and other special events. The teachers administrators coaches and Board of Ed. members are accessible to the public because many of them are your friends and neighbors. Florence schools have a great small town atmosphere. The more involved you become the better your experience will be. There are many opportunities to get involved in your child's education.

    Chaotic classrooms. My child had to deal with bullying issues and seemed to be surrounded by kids with behavior issues on a constant basis. School did little to nothing to address the issues. Very disappointed. Expected better.

    I removed my son from this school after being frustrated year after year (from Kdg through 2nd) with constant bullying which included having 2 winter coats stolen from him being hit in school on the playground & on the bus lack of discipline for children who cannot keep their hands to themselves and a serious lack of help academically for my child. The "no child left behind" act must not have applied to my son because he definitely was being pushed on through despite being very very behind academically & despite my pleas year after year for him to receive some help. His awful school experience only turned around once I removed him from this school & had him repeat 2nd grade elsewhere where he was FINALLY given the help he needed to thrive & succeed. Not impressed with this school at all & will not be utilizing it ever again for my younger children.

    My son attended this school for four years during which nothing ever changed. I had problems with him getting harassed by other children getting hit items stolen from him and failure for the teacher (and bus driver) to do a thing. He would get punished for failure to speak out against his classmates that were causing problems. I would call the teacher and explains things only to have the same incidents occur repeatedly. I had an excellent elementary school experience it's horrible that my son wasn't able to have the same. I opted to home school him rather than send him onto the middle school where the problems are significantly worse. Any other children I may have will be home schooled. I won't put another child through the same experience. I only wish I home schooled him from the start.

    Although I am happy with my child's teacher & the effort she puts forth I am unhappy with the school's lack of discipline. My child has dealt with bullying for 2 years in a row now - in the lunchroom and on the bus - but the school lacks accountability for keeping my child safe & happy. They do not act interested in hearing concerns or especially complaints! It seems to be accepted that there are kids who do not keep their hands to themselves... Which is unacceptable to me since 'bullying' is supposed to be something that is not tolerated in our schools. If I had the financial means my child would be enrolled in a Catholic school ASAP.

    My son attended Roebling school from Kdg through 3rd grade. I was very pleased every year with the quality of his teachers and the curriculum including art music computer class field trips etc. Whenever I had a question or concern regarding anything the teacher response was excellent. Most importantly my son loves school and that's what it's all about! Teachers & staff there are doing a great job in my opinion.
