I thoroughly enjoy living in East Brunswick. The public school system is award-winning and provides an amazing educational experience that offers numerous opportunities for students. One of the few things I would like to see change, however, are the amount of activities and restaurants that are readily available in town. Whatever is available is tolerable, but neighboring towns do offer more in the sense that you have more to do. Because of this, it is not a town that people regularly visit as a potential tourist attraction. Either you live in East Brunswick, have heard about it, or you've never been. Besides that, it is a great, family-friendly town that deserves more recognition!

I am a current resident in East Brunswick Township. I have lived here my whole life and overall I have had an amazing experience. I have never felt unsafe in my community and the town is very family friendly. The school system is one of the best and most safe in New Jersey. The town is fairly large as there are 8 elementary schools and the average class size is approximately 800 students. There is lots of diversity in East Brunswick with people of all ethnicities and the mixed crowd makes a great learning environment for students. To add, there is easy access to several local restaurants and stores in town. The East Brunswick mall is a great place with stores and shops for everyone. Overall, I would give East Brunswick five stars because it is a well-rounded town for all families to enjoy!
East Brunswick is a safe and diverse town, great for all types of people! The school systems are tolerant and challenging. There are also a variety of amazing restaurants and local business on hand whenever they are needed. East Brunswick is considered the half way point between Philadelphia and New York, so it makes it a great town to live in to commute to work.
