Greetings and welcome to the 2012-2013 school year for Woodbury Junior – Senior High School!
Woodbury Junior - Senior High School – located in the heart of Woodbury City – is a great place to be where adults and children come together with the goal to make every day meaningful and productive. Our faculty is committed to becoming the best in personalizing the educational experience for all children; those efforts are also embraced by a supportive parent and business community. Our students are engaged in meaningful work that allows them to learn what we believe is important for their success in the world of their future. In addition to the academic program, our students are offered a co-curricular program that is comprehensive and exciting; there is something for every child!
Woodbury Junior - Senior High School has a long history of outstanding academic and extra-curricular success. Nearly seventy percent (70%) of our high school students enroll in Honors/Advanced Placement classes. Our school ranks very high in the College Board’s assessment of the overall number of Advanced Placement tests taken and in the number of students earning passing sores when compared to schools across the state.
We have enjoyed great success in establishing a genuine college going culture at Woodbury Junior – Senior High School through the implementation of the AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) program - a program designed to ensure that every student leaves our school college ready. We are very proud to have been selected as the first Junior – Senior AVID demonstration school in the nation -- a school where academic rigor permeates our entire program of study.
Woodbury Junior – Senior High School was the proud recipient of the College Board Gaston Caperton Inspiration Award in May 2012 being recognized and celebrated for our work in creating and sustaining a college – going culture and opening doors to rigorous course work and higher education. We are very proud of our work developing the “Option II” program that provides students the opportunity to earn high school credit for experiences outside of the traditional school setting as a way to fulfill the New Jersey Core Content Standards.
Our success lies in a culture of respect and pride that manifests itself through the commitment of our faculty, the support of our parents, and the involvement of the overall community. Woodbury Junior - Senior High School is an exceptional place inside and outside of the classroom.
We are pleased to announce that Woodbury Junior- Senior High School will be participating in the Interdistrict Public School Choice for the 2013-2014 school year.
Our parents are an integral part of our learning community. I encourage you to join our Parent Teacher – Student Association (PTSA) to enhance the opportunities we can provide- together – for your child’s education. We believe that the strength of our community is directly related to the strength of our schools. Collaborative work of staff and parents make our school a dynamic place to learn and work.

WOODBURY, NJ – The award-winning Challenge Day program is coming to Woodbury Jr.-Sr. High School on Wednesday, December 20, 2012. Challenge Days are powerful, high-energy programs in which youth and adult participants are guided through a series of experiential learning processes. The overall goals of the program are to increase personal power and self-esteem, to shift dangerous peer pressure to positive peer support and to eliminate the acceptability of teasing, violence and all forms of oppression.
Since 1987, the Challenge Day programs have touched the lives of hundreds of thousands of teens and adults nationwide. The Challenge Day Program has received numerous awards from government officials, the juvenile justice system, and many school districts and cities throughout the nation. The program was also featured in the book Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul, the Emmy Award-winning documentary Teen Files: Surviving High School, and the Oprah Winfrey Show.
For more information, please contact Ellen Grimes, Assistant Principal, at 856-853-0123 ext. 221. To learn more about the Challenge Day program you can reference their website at www.challengeday.org.
Veteran teachers depend on it. Novice teachers yearn for it. Cindy Cammarota uses her ‘teacher bag of tricks’ with finesse and exceptional skill. So much that you might think she was the designer of the well-respected bag and all of its contents.
Cindy Cammarota is instinctive, caring, and conscientious – to every student and colleague.
Her sense of ‘team’ transcends into ‘family’ – every hour of every day. Her students respond to her with confidence, taking risks to produce masterful works in literacy. The teachers she leads as the 7th grade Team Leader, embrace her leadership by working diligently to provide the most rigorous, yet nurturing educational experience daily.
Mrs. Cammarota is one of a few who have mastered the art and the science of teaching, and our school is a better place because of her.
When you enter Thilana Chandler’s room you immediately get the sense that a family resides there. It is a classroom where great things happen instructionally and socially every day.
Mrs. Chandler’s work is quiet, yet steady; her delivery of instruction is sound and exceptional. Her work could easily go unnoticed as she embraces everyday focusing on her time, energy and exceptional skills on the students she is assigned to elevate each day.
Thilana Chandler could have worked anywhere and she would have been a valuable asset; she chose Woodbury and our school - especially her students - are the greatest beneficiaries of that choice.
Congratulations Mrs. Chandler for receiving the 2013 Teacher of the Year award!
The highly effective teacher of children with special needs requires a special dose of the qualities of a strong teacher. It is those particular set of qualities that make Jake Lessman stand out and worthy of the Teacher of the Year Award for 2012.
Overall, it is the special work that Jake does to allow each student to excel and learn in a comfortable setting that makes Mr. Lessman’s work special, unique, and worthy of recognition.
In this new Junior High program, in a few short years, Mr. Lessman has promoted an environment of acceptance and inclusion for his students – socially and academically; his patience and flexibility in regard to each child’s overall performance is extraordinary.
Mr. Lessman has a firm yet caring approach that works, even when he is not in the presence of his students. He has a vested interest in helping his students steadily progress and realize their academic and social potential and an ability to offer positive reinforcement as a way of inspiring his students to achieve their goals in school and daily life.
Special education is a challenging field that involves many responsibilities, and teachers who are capable of offering the support and guidance needed for students with disabilities are of great value. Those who possess the characteristics of a good special education teacher and persist in meeting their goals will contribute to the success and productivity of many children and young adults. Our students and the entire Woodbury Junior – Senior High School are blessed to have Jake Lessman guide our students. Congratulations on a job – well done Mr. Lessman!
There was something special about Natalie Barretta from the first day she joined us as a Rowan University student teacher. Her connections with students, her love of math, and enthusiasm for teaching combine to make a great teacher.
Ms. Barretta was bigger than life as a student teaching other students and continues to be an enthusiastic, passionate champion of students in and out of her classroom.
She does a lot of the things that great teachers do: teaching bell to bell; working with students on either side of the school day and in-between classes; making her students work harder than she does; and removing math insecurities with confidence and courage – all with a contagious smile, energy, and incomparable compassion for every student who crosses her path.
It is no surprise that she received the 2012 Teacher of the Year award. She is awesome at everything she does in and out of the classroom; with and for students. Congratulation, Ms. Barretta. You make us very proud.
