Can someone please tell me how Edison is divided - there are several zips and I'm sure 08820 is North Edison - the more "desirable" area. Are there any other areas that sharen N. Edison's school system or have good schools themselves? I don't really care about J.P. Stevens H.S. in N.E. - I have little ones and it will be a while before we get there...

Thanks!

Default North Edison

I use to live in North Edison with the 08820 zip code and I think that is the only zip code that belongs to North Edison which is just beyond the border of Metuchen. The other section is called South Edison but unfortunately I can't remember the zip code. If you should decide on Edison, stick with the 08820 zip code. North Edison is the best area and best schools. Good luck!

edison only got 2 high school. one is J.P Steven and the other is Edison High. I believe that only 08820 zone goes to J P Steven which is the better school people are talking about in Edison. The other zipcode like 08817 is going to Edison High. Some people said the program in Edison High is still good, but just too crowded. I also have a little one and thinking about buying a new townhouse in edison which will be in zip 08817. I am still not sure about this. I have to go to the development to see the whole environment and then we can make the decision. My husband has same thought as yours. He thinks that Edison High should be good by the time that our little one goes to high school because North Edison is over crowded already.

Default Edison Schools

I think you really can't go wrong with the school system in Edison. No. Edison schools may be rated a bit higher but still overall Edison is a good school district. I can vouch for JP Stevens. All three of my cousins went there and moved onto excellent colleges and were well prepared. My son is going into a top rated HS in Washington but the down side is it's very crowded as well. I guess there is no perfect school.

I don't know much about the north side. It is typically more affluent than the south side so that may explain why the people there can be more "stuck up". I lived on the south side and know it very well and yes it is a quite pleasant environment with friendly people, and all the schools there are excellent. You really cannot go wrong on either "side" of town.

It is a very large town and is centrally located to a seemingly endless amount of amenities. My only complaint about it is the traffic. The area is very congested and overdeveloped. I moved out in 2004.

There is also 08837. This covers Raritan Center and surrounding neighborhoods.

I used to live in 08817, in "undesirable" South Edison. While attending Middlesex County College and, later on, Rutgers in New Brunswick, I did hear a lot of young people talking bad about this part of town. However, most of these kids were the children of immigrant parents who don't care about this country to begin and only lived in 08820 so they could talk about it.

I don't think North Edison is affluent. It's the SAME town, only with horrendous McMansions and double the taxes. If someone is looking for affluence, they should move to Princeton, or at least Metuchen.
