It's a lovely township with a mix of farmland and newer development. Homes are generally expensive but you can sometimes find a good deal. The schools have a good reputation but we have found that it works best for kids that are either really, really smart or really, really need help. Those who are in-between tend to get lost or overlooked. Lots of good recreation options in and around the township.

Hopewell Township is a great place to live and raise a family. The schools are great and the sense of community supports local life. The government is responsive and responsible. Residents are active, well educated, and support the environment.
I honestly love small town atmosphere. It is extremely kids and family friendly because there are often people who go out at night for family walks to their favorite restaurant. It give the small town feel but most of the people there have liberal tendencies. The fire department has wonderful volunteers. The town is part of a great school district and there are always opportunities to work, volunteer, etc. A lot of the businesses around the area readily employ teenagers. The community is tightly knit and extremely kind.
