I really like Franklin Lakes! It's a quiet suburban town with a lot of nature. It could be more diverse though.

When I moved going into high school I felt very welcomed here and was offered all the tools I needed to succeed. My high school experience definitely prepared me for college!
Great town that’s close to NYC. Excellent schools and quiet neighborhoods. Low crime rate. Lots of organized activities for young children.
