The Cranbury School Reviews

No diversity. Mostly white, privileged children and recently Asian. Moms arrange playdates so there's no mixing with the 'wrong' kids. A child with any difference is bullied. Administration concerned with the reputation of the school not the well being of a child. Anti-bullying is a joke since the social worker overseeing it plays favorites. If you don't fit the Stepford wife, perfect family mold, you will not be happy. The snobbiness of Cranbury is unseemly. People may outwardly project caring but are the next day gossiping moms stab you in the back. Is small town life and everybody in your business for you? Teachers who live in town share private information with other Cranbury residents.

My family moved to Cranbury so we could go to Princeton High School. The bus ride to high school is long and there's always traffic around Princeton Junction Train Station, Plainsboro Road or around Stults Farm. I wish my parents moved to Princeton instead. If I stay for sports or afterschool or want to go into town I have to figure out how to get home. Not much to do in Cranbury.
The Cranbury School is a phenomenal educational institution that really prepares students for high school. As an alum, I'm truly grateful for the support I received from this school. The only thing I would like to see addressed is the lack of racial diversity within the faculty. Cranbury has become more diverse since I was a student, and I would love it if that diversity was paralleled with an increasingly diverse pool of staff.
