Hi all,
I'm interested in learning more about Tinton Falls...my family's considering moving to the area in the near future.

If anyone has knowledge of Tinton Falls I would love to know:
How are the elementary schools? high schools?
Are there areas that are more family friendly?
If you live/lived there, would you recommend buying a house there?

Thank you so much!

I lived for approx. 30 years in Eatontown, which is next to Tinton Falls. The school system is above average for the area. The elementary is the Mahalia Attichson Elmentary School. The High School is Monmouth Regional. It is a very family friendly area. Very small town suburbia. House prices as you could possibly guess are totally off the charts!

I used to work there, just a few years ago. Nothing wrong with Tinton Falls, overall peaceful, typical NJ suburbia.

NJ is composed of many small communities near Tinton Falls, some have better schools than others. Alot of families here are working currently for the government at Fort Monmouth. I am a realtor in the area and have friends that moved there they like it, but they have very high taxes in relation to some of the other local towns.


Here is a link

Good luck

It's not typical suburbia. I grew up in Hasbrouck Heights, a suburb of New York. Tinton Falls is NOT Hasbrouck Heights.

Tinton Falls is a converted horse farm, with grand developments. It's "nice" but isolated and Stepford Wifey.

LOL My husband and I refer to my sister in law's development as Stepford

Thank you all for the feedback-I appreciate it.

I honestly don't really know much about Tinton Falls specifically, aside from the fact that that is where you get the Parkway from Rt 18. It's near Shrewsbury and Eatontown and that surrounding area.

That entire area is very Stepford Wifey indeed - bland, soulless, McMansion-laid suburbia built on former farmland with lots of new money scum out of NYC - but not so much in places like Eatontown or Shrewsbury, but more in places a bit further west like Colts Neck, Marlboro and Manalapan to name just a few, the absolute last places in the state I would choose to live.

I really cannot say what the people in TF are like specifically though.

Just be alert in the area around route 33(southern part) there is a landfill which on certain days you can smell it at Wal-Mart just east of Tinton Falls depending on wind and other weather conditions.

All in all, Tinton Falls would be a lot more typical suburbia than Hasbrouck Heights. Also you are comparing 2 different parts of NJ, different densities, etc.
From one side of Tinton Falls you have that big Navy ammo depot which stretches many miles almost to Freehold. Nothing like that up North except possibly Picattiny.
