I am considering a move to Philly and I'm a teacher. Because of certification issues I would need to work in South Jersey. I teach English Language Learners so I would need a school district with a lot of immigrants. What towns/school districts close to Philly have large immigrant populations?

Well, are you looking for "diverse" places or are you looking for places w/ lots of immigrants? The two questions would get you pretty different answers because most people in South Jersey are black or white, so diversity to most folks means "racially integrated," not "full of immigrants."

Off the top of my head,
- Camden is a very poor city has a lot of Puerto Ricans and Dominicans. The rest of the city is African American.
- Trenton has a good mix of Latin Americans, Puerto Ricans, Dominicans, African Americans, West Indians, and Italian Americans.
- Riverside is a small town that has a large Brazilian and Portuguese population.

All three are on the river across from Philadelphia, but Trenton is a little further up the river and is considered to be more "Central Jersey." Camden would be the easiest commute.

If you're looking for Asian immigrants, they mostly settle in more affluent suburban communities like Cherry Hill.

Cherry Hill also has a decent number of Russian-speaking people.

You can live in Cherry Hill and Commute to a Camden School, 5 min. commute.

You can also recreate the "Dangerous Minds" movie while you're at it!
