Yeah it seems when I looked at the NJ Public School Rankings, the best Hoboken Public Schools rank average out of all of NJ which I'm ok with but there are some that are in the bottom 50 out of 1200 public schools in NJ.

It seems Hoboken Schools are terrible to begin with because it accepts a lot of out of resident students from nearby towns like union city, and jersey city.

I'm currently researching to make sure I get to pick which school in the district my kid gets to go to. I don't want to pay for private schooling...one would think with how high property taxes are in Hoboken that there would be better public school

My friends' taught in Hoboken a few years ago and they said the schools were horrible. The problem is that you get a lot of kids from the projects.

The Hoboken public schools are terrible! And not just because they accept kids from the projects, they too have an equal right to an education, the problem is condo parents sending their children to programs like headstart that were initially geared toward poor families and kids. I see a huge problem with people who have the means to send their children to private school and choose to send their children to programs that were initially for poor children.

Yeah, that's why the public schools in Hoboken suck. Because of the condo parents.

My kid goes to private school in Hoboken but the feedback I get from parents that send their kids to the public schools is, the charter schools are good. Hola, the spanish immersion school is good but the rest are not so hot, especially after 5th grade.

Its a young progress town that has gotten ahead of itself. Meanwhile its neighbors are starting to overtake Hoboken in everyday living.
