I grew up in WWP (born and raised), and currently reside in WWP once again. The school district is still top notch (for a public school).

And you don't have to be making a lot of money to live here. You can get by just fine with a combined income of $150k.

Honestly, though, I think you're better off saving money by living in South Brunswick or other nearby town, and sending your kids to private school... Either Peddie or Hun. Even the best public school education (and I went to WWP public, which is one of the best), isn't as good as either of these private schools.

Is South Brunswick really that much cheaper?
