Folsom School District is a PK-8 district located in western Atlantic County between the towns of Hammonton and Buena Vista. Folsom School was chosen as one of the original 10 choice districts by the New Jersey Department of Education in 2000.
With the success of the choice program, Folsom School has been able to add and sustain two classes per grade level from grades K-8, as well as a full-day preschool. All Folsom students benefit from access to a range of programs targeting the development of 21st century skills, including an Enrichment Program in grades K though 5 that incorporates Lego simple machines (physics). All elementary students participate in Art, Music, World Language (Spanish), and Digital Arts along with Health/PE.
As students’ progress through the grades, several opportunities for real-world learning enhance their Choice experience. Students in Grades 6 through 8 engage in a technology rich curriculum that includes computer and financial literacy; technology, engineering, and design through hands-on, collaborative work using Lego Mindstorms© robotics; digital photography and graphic design.
Students in Grades 5 through 8 may participate in a broad range of before/after school sports and activities, including FTN – our state of the art TV studio, Art Club, ASL Club, Chorus and Band, Drama, cross country, basketball, volleyball, and softball.

Choice Seats Available for 2020-2021 School Year
The purpose of this profile is to inform parents of choice seat availability before the application deadline of Dec. 3, 2019. After the deadline, the information will be outdated.
The Department of Education limits the number of choice seats that each district can fill. The “maximum number of new choice students that can be enrolled” tells parents how many new choice students the district can enroll in the upcoming school year. If more than the maximum number of applications is received, a lottery will be held and a waitlist will be developed. Waitlists will be developed for all approved choice grades even if no seats are currently available.
