Principal - Monica Moore-Cook


Dear Parents/Guardians:


Welcome to Paulsboro Junior High School!  I am excited to be your principal and enthused to work with students, parents, and a team of educators. It is my belief that students can achieve, have positive school behavior, and good attendance with our collaborative efforts.  


I have been an educator in the Paulsboro School District for many years and want to see our students progress and become productive citizens.  This is a shared vision of the PJHS/PHS family.  Our team of educators is committed to providing a rigorous curriculum and relevant, engaging learning experience that will foster academic achievement.  


We know a few key factors in increasing academic success are communication, connection, collaboration, and willingness to do WHATEVER IT TAKES for our students to excel.  Our academic accomplishments coincide with Paulsboro Pride and Raider Respect.   We are looking forward to fostering students' great character and educational goals beyond the classroom. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your child’s village!



Mrs. Monica Moore-Cook

Assistant Principal / Athletic Director- John Giovannitti

Assistant Principal


Welcome to Paulsboro Junior High School! My name is John Giovannitti and I am extremely excited and honored to be the Paulsboro Junior High Vice Principal. As an administrator within the Paulsboro School District, I have worked with families and students from Paulsboro for over 35 years.  I have witnessed firsthand the outstanding education students from Paulsboro have received and I am looking forward to the school year.  I eagerly await the opportunity to continue working with students, parents, and staff in my role. 

Our goal is to prepare students for success in life! To accomplish this, students engage in a rigorous comprehensive curriculum that emphasizes best practices in education.  We look to create "thinking"  classrooms where student ideas are valued and utilized part of the program. Special emphasis is made on student collaboration, problem-solving and digital literacy.  Our collaborative staff works very hard to develop  standards-based curriculum that is aligned throughout the content and grade levels toward a set of learning standards focused on what students can do.


Mr. John Giovannitti
