Chews School, named for its location in the Chews Landing section of the township, was completed as a 12-room building in 1958 — the same year its sister school, Blackwood, opened. It now boasts more than 40 classrooms for 800-plus students in grades K-5.
The Somerdale Road school's third principal, Leon Shedloski, is by far its longest tenured. Mr. Shedloski headed the school between 1964 and 1985. David Hinlicky became the school's principal in 2010, taking over for Tracy J. Elwell.
