Sharp Student Pledge


I promise to work hard and never give up,

To believe in myself and to try new things.

I will be open-minded to others’ opinions,

Be caring and empathetic to everyone.

I will act peacefully and respectfully

And look for ways I can improve the world around me!

The mission of Joseph D. Sharp Elementary School is to see that all our students learn at high levels according to the Common Core State Standards and New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards. The future of our students depends on our success! We must work collaboratively to achieve that purpose, because it is impossible to accomplish if we work in isolation. And, we must continually assess our effectiveness in achieving our purpose on the basis of results—tangible evidence that our students are acquiring the knowledge, skills, and dispositions that are essential to their future success as contributing members and lifelong learners in an international society.



Joseph D. Sharp Elementary School is located on 300 Old Orchard Road between Route 70 and Cropwell Road in the neighborhood known as Old Orchard in Cherry Hill, New Jersey 08003.  Mr. Ric Miscioscia, our principal and our entire staff are here to welcome you to our school.  If you have any questions or concerns you may telephone us at (856) 424-1550 or visit our main office. Be our guest as you navigate through our website
