That's a pretty nice development, especially for a rental. I would concentrate my search on Cinnaminson and Marlton. Delran's schools are not as good as the other towns. Mt. Laurel is good, but condo/townhome rentals are most likely going to be in the one sketchier development. If you do go the Mt. Laurel route, avoid anything in Larchmont that is a condo/townhome rental.

From Cinna or Delran, pretty easy commute to Hamilton, 130 N to creek rd to 295 N.

My cousins live there and have a son with Autism and have no complaints about it at all. On par with Cherry Hill or Haddonfield? No, but it is a good school district, definitely in the top 200.

It's all relative. Between the towns the OP listed, Delran definitely wasn't the best school district. It doesn't mean it's total crap, it just means it's not as good as the others at least in terms of reputation and statistics.

Like most things with schools though, outside of the absolute crappiest districts, NJ public schools are very good and most of a students success is going to be driven by how active their parents are in their education. Someone can go to Haddonfield and get a crap education. Someone else can go to Delran and get a great one.

From a socio economic standpoint, Cinnaminson and Delran are almost identical IMO.

This is what I thought.
