IMPORTANT: One thing to remember is that as REALTORS® we can't give you an opinion on a neighborhood or local school because those things are based on personal preference and life experience. However, we can speak about our own personal experience in towns we have lived in and the schools our children have attended. SO, just ask us!

Want to Learn More About Local Schools? Here are some great resources:

The New Jersey State Parent Information and Resource Center (NJPIRC) - NJPIRC is a statewide, non-profit organization whose policies and activities are designed to improve student academic achievement and to help ensure that students in NJ, particularly those in low-performing districts, achieve high academic performance.

Great Schools - A national, independent nonprofit organization committed to helping parents choose schools, support their children's education and improve schools in their communities. Visit this website to learn more about New Jersey schools and compare schools from around the state and country.

State of New Jersey, Department of Education – School Report Cards - The annual New Jersey School Report Card is required by state law. It presents thirty-five fields of information for each school in the following categories: school environment, students, student performance indicators, staff, and district finances.

Additional Notes:

Many of the school rankings are done by testing scores so they are fairly one dimensional. If you want real information about a principal, teacher, or the culture of a school, you need to find parents to speak with. One easy way is to go to the town, hit the playgrounds and library story times and ask who lives locally. Some towns have community message boards through Facebook and most schools will let you come in and tour the school at certain times of the year when school districts have open house events.
