Hi, I just drove through Hammonton yesterday. Very rural very pretty, no developments and a nice small town that looked as if it was improving by that I mean that I saw some closed down stores but newer stores opening.If you have teenagers I'm not sure there would be a lot for them to do but you could probably get an older home with an acre or so. Don't know anything about the schools.Good Luck

Well if you have kids from 4 - 14 i would suggest the school system there, I am not aware of an elementary school in Hammonton but there is a nearby pre-k through 8th grade school in Folsom which i go to. Their school is a good system. if kids that go to Folsom Elementary "graduate" 8th grade they then go to Hammonton High. but there is also Collings Lakes, good neighborhood and they have Collings Lakes Elementary, But then those kids go to Buena Regional High. Hammonton has a Middle School also i believe
. I highly reccomend this school system

I don't know a thing about the school system. My guess was that it was average, somewhere in the middle. I looked at a few online stats and that seems to be the case.


You can search the internet for all kinds of numbers like graduation rates, test scores and the like.

"Downtown" Hammonton is not the prettiest place in the world, but has a peculiar charm. There is a quite a bit of through traffic on Rt. 30 and Rt. 54. Overall, it's a nice area. The region is quite nice. You will definitely need cars if you live there.

A few of the things to do and see in the area:

Department of Environmental Protection

Batsto Village Home Page

Renault Winery

Department of Environmental Protection

Atlantic City Hotels, Lodging, and Casinos in Atlantic City, New Jersey

Tuckerton Seaport A Project of the Barnegat Bay Decoy and Baymen's Museum Inc.

Brigantine Beach... an island you'll love for life!

Lucy, the Amazing Elephant Building

Can you tell that I love this area? It's not big city excitement, but you can go to Philadelphia for that...or New York.
