The Principal's Message

September 1, 2015

Dear Cherry Hill High School West School Community,    

Happy New Year! It is with much enthusiasm that I extend this greeting to the entire Cherry Hill High School West community. I am genuinely grateful for the opportunity to work with the students of HS West. I am excited to welcome the Class of 2019 into the HS West family. I look forward to developing relationships with the members of the Class, and I also look forward to observing their success both in and out of the classroom.  I would also like to send a final farewell and congratulations to the members of the Class of 2015.  Their contributions to the HS West community will not be soon forgotten. 

The entire faculty and staff of Cherry Hill High School West are dedicated to the success of each of our students as demonstrated through our commitment to excellence. We seek to immerse our students into the tradition of excellence that has been resident at Cherry Hill High School West for nearly 60 years.  Cherry Hill High School West has a rich, distinct culture and history in being a place where all students are afforded with the opportunity to be successful academically, socially, and emotionally. We take great pride in meeting our collective vision, which is to prepare all of our students for post-secondary life by maintaining high expectations for achievement, for character, for community, and for personal responsibility.

Cherry Hill High School West affords all students with the opportunity to experience a sense of belonging. We offer a wide array of academic course offerings, activities, clubs, and athletic sports teams. I strongly encourage every student to find an area of interest that they will pursue while here at High School West. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to serve as the Principal of Cherry Hill High School West, and I look forward to interacting and working with our school community. As one who seeks to continually improve in process and practice I ask for your support and feedback regarding your child’s educational experience. I thank you in advance for your continued support, and I look forward to seeing you around campus!

Yours truly,
Dr. Kwame R. Morton, Sr.
