Clementon Elementary School opened in 1980. A six-room addition was completed in 1993 and a new wing for seventh and eighth grade students was completed in 2000. Extensive renovations were completed in 2005. The school has an enrollment of about 552 students in pre-kindergarten through eighth grades and is the community’s only school building. Beginning in ninth grade, students attend Overbrook Senior High School, along with students from Berlin Township and Pine Hill.  Students may also be accepted to Camden County Technical School.

The Clementon Board of Education is committed to providing students with a quality education. This is reflected in the fact that Clementon has been fully certified by the New Jersey Department of Education. The Board of Education continues to place a high priority on developing technology resources for classroom instruction and media use.

Core programs for all children include reading, mathematics, language, spelling, writing skills, handwriting, science, social studies, and world language. In addition, children study art, music, media skills, health education, study skills, physical education, and computer literacy.

Emergency Cards

In order to have accurate information on each student, we are requesting that a parent or guardian complete an emergency card. It is essential that we have one for every student in our care. Please note that students will not be released to anyone not listed on the emergency card. Each child must have four emergency contacts listed (must be over 18 years of age). Identification will be required for anyone picking a student up from school. If any phone numbers should change during the school year, we are requesting that you promptly write a note to the main office or via On-Course with the aforementioned changes. Any additions or removals of persons from the card must be done in person. Any documentation regarding legal custody of a child must be noted on the emergency card and verified with the proper court decree.

Mobile Phone Policy

Mobile phones are permitted, but must be turned off while in the school building. If students need to contact parents during the school day, they need to ask a school administrator. If students are feeling sick, they need to get a pass from the classroom teacher to see the nurse. The school nurse will determine if the student needs to go home. Phone calls from mobile phones are not permitted in school for any reason. If a student is using a mobile phone in the school building, the phone will be confiscated, the parent will be notified, and the parent will be required to personally come in and retrieve the phone from an administrator. Continuous mobile phone usage will require more serious consequences.
