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!

 

Go Mustangs!

Letter from Dr. Meloche to Gov. Phil Murphy Regarding State Statute on Unpaid Meals Policy
Letter from Dr. Meloche to Gov. Phil Murphy Regarding State Statute on Unpaid Meals Policy

Cherry Hill Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Joseph Meloche on Friday, August 30, 2019 sent a letter to New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, imploring him to insist on legislation that removes the State-mandated language requiring the withholding of meals as part of the Unpaid Meal policies required of public school districts statewide. Dr. Meloche has spoken with our state legislators about this topic as well. We will update the community about the response(s) to the letter when we receive them. In the meantime, for the 2019-2020 school year, all children will be fed lunch, every day.
