Virtua School of the Week: Cherry Hill East

One of South Jersey's largest public schools, East annually has approximately 2,000 students but still keeps a close-knit feel

The 2014-15 academic year has been a very good one at Cherry Hill East in terms of sports success.

The school already boasts two state championship teams so far with the boys' cross country and boys' swimming teams bringing home the championship prize. 

Check out our coverage of the boys' swimming championship:

And members of the team stopped by on our South Jersey Sports Digest Show in March:

The boys'  basketball team reached the state finals but fell in the title game. Here's our coverage of the East boys' hoops team, including the state final and their crosstown rivalry game with Cherry Hill West:

Boys' tennis is historically strong at East with former coach Ralph Ipri posting a 956-90 career record in 45 seasons, 41 of which were at East from 1970-2011. This spring, they already did some damage in the Camden County tourney, sweeping it. In case you missed it, here's the story:

The school's student cheering group, "The Countrymen" turned into a huge swarm at the boys' hoops state finals at Rutgers University, with 10 busloads making the trek up the NJ Turnpike.

But there's much more to East than sports.

The school newspaper, Eastside, has always been a strong extracurricular item, earning the distinction as No. 1 in the country in 2005 by the American Scholastic Press Assoc. It was No. 1 in the state from 2007-13. The school's music department is also a source of pride. And academically, Cherry Hill East is always among the best in South Jersey.

The school opened in 1967 as the township's second high school; what then became known as Cherry Hill High School West was the first public high school in Cherry Hill. The first Cherry Hill East graduating class graduated in June 1970, having started their freshman year in the fall of 1966 in the West building and doing split sessions until the East building was ready for occupancy in January 1967. 

Of course, Cherry Hill West is East's biggest rival. The sister schools play every Thanksgiving in football for the Al DiBart Memorial Trophy, which is also known as "The Boot," an old bronzed high top cleat. And any game or contest between the two schools is always hotly contested.
