About Somers Point Schools...
    The Somers Point School District of approximately 890 students (Preschool through 8th grade) consists of three schools. The Jordan Road School, constructed in 1966 with an addition in 1991, is a Fourth through Eighth-grade building which houses approximately 410 students. Dawes Avenue School was constructed in 1998 and sits on the other side of town and houses Kindergarten through 3rd grade, approximately 400 students. The third school is the New York Avenue School, constructed in 1914 with an addition in 1922 and refurbished in 2005. The New York Avenue School houses five full-day Preschool classes, with approximately 70 students. The school also houses the Central Office, Business Office, Child Study Team Office, and the Community Education Recreation Office.
    The district is noted for its diverse population that excels not only academically but also in school-related activities including sports, the arts, and service organizations. The district has been fortunate to have an active Education Foundation that has funded technology programs, mini-grants, and the annual Stokes Trip, investing approximately $250,000 to our schools over the past ten years.
