We are planning to relocate from PA to Hamilton, NJ. Came across an ad from Ryan Homes for Christopher Estates located near Hamilton Train Station under Hamilton Township School District. Are the Hamilton Township schools good. The taxes come to about $14000 per year which is kinda huge compared to PA. Also have an autistic child and earlier heard good things about NJ schools and their programs for kids on the spectrum. But I came across some threads here which dont say so. Kindly advise. Need to come to a decision before the end of this month as Ryan Homes are offering freen basement and sun room. Please advise.

Hamilton overall is very nice. It's just the area immediately surrounding Trenton (which is not the area in question) that is shady. The neighborhood this development is in, is nice and quiet. Hamilton schools, from what I know (I don't have kids but I have a lot of friends that do) are decent. Again, the Hamilton schools that border Trenton are iffy, but the rest are average or a little better. I have a few friends that grew up in Hamilton and they turned out fine, went to college, got good jobs, and are now starting families of their own in Hamilton or the surrounding area. Not a bad place to raise a family if you like the 'burbs...you will be very close to a movie theater and the mall.

The area by the train station is quite nice. Hamilton has their act together... soon the whole town is supposed to be wired for free wi-fi. And the train station area will be having a strip mall with a cheesecake factory. There will be lots of sculptures that are overflowing from the Grounds for Sculpture.

I already commented re: autism in NJ but here's the info for the local AutismSpeaks 888-777-6227 x15 or NewJersey@autismspeaks.org

Me and my wife were looking at Ryan homes and were impressed by what we saw.... Until I googled Ryan Homes Complaints / Problems and I came up with pages and pages of complaints. I would recommend you do some research on the builder, I wouldn't touch any of these crappy build houses now from what I read.

I feel the taxes are a bit high for Hamilton. I saw many houses there 2 1/2 years ago before we knew we would get a transfer and not one had taxes that high. We were looking in the $450,-$480 range so I'm not sure if those are higher. I know notthing about that builder other than unfavorable comments I read on Line.
