Just drove through these areas the other day and they seem beautiful. Can anyone tell me how the schools are? Family oriented or not? Anything I should be aware of? Thank you.

I lived in millstone growing up and still have family there and I also have family in monroe so I can probably shed some light. They're both great places to live. You can't go wrong with either.

Monroe is older and has more infrastructure set up. Both towns were historically farming areas that have built up over the last 20 years (like everywhere else). Most newer construction in Millstone is on 1 acre lots as that was a town ordinance for a long time. I don't think this is/was the case with Monroe so you'll see homes with smaller plots there.

Monroe has their own high school while Millstone does not. Monroe schools win awards every now and then. I'm not sure if Millstone ever has, but I went to Millstone schools and I turned out quite nicely :-)

Millstone has K-8 and then for high school they are a part of the Upper Freehold Regional School District. High school students attend Allentown High School.

People from both of these towns are generally seen as having money. The difference I think is that Monroe has a couple of "not great" areas such as areas bordering Jamesburg while Millstone is really the same throughout. And when I say "not great," don't panic, I mean older developments with houses close together and the occupants are not millionaires.
