Why is this important?
Haddonfield Public Schools have always ranked among the top in the state and the nation.
We’ve achieved this status and our many accomplishments despite an archaic and unfair state funding system that bases HPS’s allotment on property values and per capita income. This outdated system provides inadequate funding far below the state average. HPS is typically the lowest funded school district in Camden County. Without additional funding, HPS will have to make tough decisions that threaten sports, science, music, art programs, class size reduction, health education and technology.
HET – Why Support Us?
The Haddonfield Educational Trust, Inc. believes that effective community, corporate and alumni support is needed to provide the best educational opportunities for our children. When you make an investment through the Haddonfield Educational Trust, you’re making a statement that you support education in your community and that our children deserve the best.
By working with individuals, community groups and corporations, we hope to ensure that the quality of education our students enjoy meets or exceeds that of the finest private schools in the country, and at a cost that’s a fraction of private school tuition.
