About 2.6% of families and 3.9% of the population were below the poverty line, including 4.2% of those under age 18 and 4.0% of those age 65 or over.

Public school students in seventh through twelfth grades are educated by the Kingsway Regional School District, which also serves students from South Harrison Township, Swedesboro and Woolwich Township, with the addition of students from Logan Township who attend as part of a sending/receiving relationship in which tuition is paid on a per-pupil basis by the Logan Township School District. As of the 2011-12 school year, the district’s two schools had an enrollment of 2,060 students and 154.0 classroom teachers (on an FTE basis), for a student–teacher ratio of 13.38:1. Schools in the district (with 2011-12 enrollment data from the National Center for Education Statistics) are Kingsway Regional Middle School with 871 students in grades 7-8 and Kingsway Regional High School with 1,189 students in grades 9-12. Under a 2011 proposal, Kingsway would merge with its constituent member’s K-6 districts to become a full K-12 district, with various options for including Logan Township as part of the consolidated district.
