The education you receive at cranbury school is incomparable. The amount of cranbury students who excel in Princeton high school is very evident once you get there. To the people saying there is no diversity, well I’m not really sure what you expect cranbury school to do about it considering it is a PUBLIC SCHOOL. They aren’t denying African Americans into the school, it’s more of an issue of African Americans not living in cranbury.....Anyways I would never trade my experience at cranbury school for ANYWHERE ELSE! My friends and I (yes, we maintain our cranbury friends for life) still talk about how much we miss cranbury and how we wish we could go back and relive the memories there. It truly is an amazing school and had prepared me so well for Princeton high school.

There are lots of people. Roughly 400-500 kids attending. The teachers are all verified officials that complete their jobs very well. The teaching is done in a small class, roughly 18 people in one class, resulting in an enclosed environment, leading to better teaching (more private). Has as many students as a private school. The music program is very good because our Jazz Band placed 1st nationally at the national jazz fest. The sports programs are diverse as well, with many different kinds of sports. There are indian, chinese, some African American students as well. There are hispanic students, some who cannot speak english, and the teachers and students are happy to help them. The safety protocols are very good, and everyone knows what to do. Lots of friendly folks there, kids and teachers. There is only one rude/mean student per grade (generally) out of 60 kids. There are also 2 years of preschool, and k-8.
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.
