Two pre-K through grade 12 school districts call Hammonton home: the Hammonton Public School District and the St. Joseph Roman Catholic School District.
The Hammonton Public Schools are housed in some of the most modern facilities in the state. The Hammonton Middle School was built in 1966 and is currently slated for $2.5 million in improvements, the Warren E. Sooy Elementary School was opened in 1976, the Hammonton Early Childhood Education Center opened in 2001 and the Hammonton High School welcomed its first classes in 2002.
The public school district provides an excellent education in an environment that is conducive to learning. Residents from Waterford attend grades 7 through 12. Residents of Folsom and Collings Lakes attend the Hammonton High School in grades 9 through 12 at a brand-new high school on a 118-acre campus.
