Home of the Mustangs
Carusi Middle School is the neighborhood middle school on the West side of Cherry Hill. Our school’s enrollment ranges from approximately 960 – 1000 students in grades 6-8. We have exciting staff and students who do incredible things every day. Our school’s focus on the whole child provides opportunities for students to grow in academic and extracurricular areas. Our curriculum focuses on academic excellence and has the three pillars of character (Respect, Responsibility, and Citizenship) rooted in all we do.
Our goal is to make connections with all our students and empower their passions into learning experiences that foster meaningful contributions to our global community. Becoming a Carusi Mustang is a lifelong commitment. We inspire students to be Caring, Academic, Respectful, Unparalleled Students with Integrity. We are proud of all of our students and their awesome accomplishments – within and beyond Carusi!

The Board of Education has embarked on the process of developing a strategic plan that will guide our district-wide work over the next 3-5 years. As we begin to build this plan, it is important that parents and community members have an opportunity to consider the future work and priorities of the district.We invite you to attend one of our open forums on Thursday, November 14, 2019 at 9:30 am in the Board Room at the Malberg Administration Building, 45 Ranoldo Terrace, or at 7:30 pm in the Large Group Instruction Room at Beck Middle School, 950 Cropwell Rd, to share your ideas about the areas of focus and bodies of work that you believe will have the most impact for our students over the next few years. These forums will be facilitated by Judith Wilson, who is leading this planning process.
