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!
I grew up in Franklin Lakes, and loved it there. It has changed over the years, but I believe most of the changes are positive....they have added great parks, athletic fields and enhanced the library. It is a very affluent town, and would be nice to see more opportunities for middle class families to live there.
