How the attendance of the high schools is broken down I'm not entirely sure. It's definitely not by demographics, but more of a regional basis. There is a Guide to Attendance on the district website, which seems to support this.

For Princeton:
Elementary- one of four schools
Middle school- Everyone goes to the same
High school- everyone goes to the same, and Cranbury kids are added in also

IMO Princeton is the better choice. The district is just as well respected as WWP. It wasn't until the last issue of NJ monthly that Princeton lost its lead over WWP, and the drop from #6 to #44 was a load of bull****. Princeton in general also offers a quality of life unlike anything WWP can provide with the downtown, academics, walkability, university, entertainment, town pride etc. However, the diversity isn't as much as WWP. Schooldigger can also give you a breakdown of limited demographics by school if you are interested.

Both districts are excellent choices, and would be more than willing to answer any questions you had.
Not true. There are two middle schools, Community and Grover.

Not in every case, but most.

West Windsor & Plainsboro are so close to Princeton that you really cannot argue that quality of life is any different (unless you plan on living downtown rather than suburbs).

The highschools are broken up by demographics. They categorize the housing complexes, then split them up between the schools. So you are going to the same school as everyone in your housing complex.
