The Moorestown Public School District received high marks from the New Jersey Department of Education’s staff evaluations based on the 2015-2016 school year. Out of 306 teachers, 246 were found to be “highly effective” and another 60 were found to be “effective.”
 
Eastern Regional High School continued the 2017-2018 school year with last year’s implementation of a “common lunch” period, where students are offered more personalized learning opportunities. All of Eastern’s students eat lunch during the same time, but they also have the ability to work in the science lab or schedule a study hall. New this year is a music technology lab where students can produce full compositions, and new technological courses, such as advanced robotics.
