    "I think Overbrook gets a bad rep by a lot of people, but I don't think it's that bad here. Sure, I've had teachers who seemed like they could care less about how their students perform, but at the same time I've had a lot of teachers who were very nice and friendly that really inspired me to do better. The administration is pretty strict on a lot of things but they've done a lot to make the school a better place and it's nice to know that they actually care. In my experience guidance has been very helpful and the counselors are very nice. The student body is also very diverse and full of talented and bright kids. The curriculum could use a little improvement as well as the general atmosphere, but overall it's not a terrible school."

    "If you're considering a move to Pine Hill, West Berlin, or Clementon, think again. Ignore the previous post; the poster was obviously a disillusioned band-parent who knows nothing of the school other than the performing arts program. While Overbrook boasts an impressive arts program, talent and funding are dwindling. From an academic perspective, this school will not prepare your children for a four-year university. The majority of students attend community or local colleges. Teaching is not rigorous. APs are lacking. Administration is awful, removed, and not making the necessary changes to the curriculum. Teachers, overall, are not very interactive or demanding. The guidance department lacks knowledge of elite universities and the classrooms are run by unmotivated, misbehaving students. The demographics of the school mean that many students come from low-income households and lack a lot of parental involvement. Crime and safety are a factor. It is very below average in every aspect. Technology is outdated, save some newly added SmartBoards. Do NOT send your children here if you want them to have a chance at a decent livelihood after graduation."

    "Overbrook is truly wonderful school! I had two kids go through there and I believe it was just a terrific experience for them! The education is first class. The teachers really care about the students and work hard to make sure every student gets the same opportunities. The music, theatre and choir programs are one of the best in the state. The marching band, and jazz band are always winning first and second place at all their completions. They got third in the state this year and fifth in nationals. Also, many students in band audition and get in All South Jersey band and All State Band, we even had one student make fifth in the state in mallets. The choir program is also top rate we had 32 kids make All South Jersey choir (the most in South Jersey) this year and 15 students make All State Choir. We had a student place first, second, and seventh in the state for Tenor one. We had a student place seventh and tenth in the state in Bass one. That is just unbelievable! The sports may be lacking but with such little money coming in the school does a great job! Overall, Overbrook is one of the best schools in New Jersey!"

    "I have had four children go thru the Pine Hill public school system and can say with complete confidences that they all recived a first rate education. The teachers are very in tune with their students and truly care about how well they are doing in class. The children in the schools are for the most part great kids. At the high school you would find it difficult to find a child thats not involved in a sport or club, the children really seem to love their school. My children were involved in the music program which is top rate, they have an award winning choir and band. I truly can't say enough about the schools in this town it has been an all around wonderful experience for my family."

    "A great high school for the music and arts program. Unlike the music and art programs, the athletics program is, and probably always was, horrid. It needs more support from parents and other students. Overbrook is a better place to make lasting friendships rather then get a great education. The curriculum that the school district uses seems to be behind, compared to what other, higher educational, schools use. The teacher aid and the classiness of the school are also other concerns. Over all, its not the best high school to attend."
