Hi Julie, Shawnee would be the sending school but exceptions are made within the regional district at the discretion of the board. If one school offers something that another does not; example Lenapee offers ROTC, Shawnee does not, that can be taken into consideration. I have a Shawnee senior now and a recent graduate - if I can answer any questions feel free to contact me.

Medford students attend Shawnee High School. This is a regional school district. If you prefer Cherokee your children can attend there but you have to provide your own transportation. I have two children at Cherokee. I also have friends in Medford whose children attend Shawnee. We were just comparing some differences. Shawnee has a junior prom and Cherokee does not. The math curriculum is also a little bit different.

If you have any questions feel free to call my cell 609-410-8111 or email me at

The sending district map is attached to this link.

The school board may make exceptions based on circumstances but you would probably have to provide your own transportation.

Note that Lenape HS is located in Medford, but Mount Laurel students attend that school, and Medford students attend Shawnee.

Feel free to call with any other questions regarding this area and sending district and homes available in those areas.

Your children would attend to Shawnee High School but if they already are in Cherokee, all you would have to do is discuss with the school and explain the situation.
Please feel free to call me with any questions.
