I grew up in--and attended public schools in--South Brunswick; and for the past 26 years I have also worked there. I have nothing but good things to say about the township, in general, and Monmouth Junction, in particular. The school system is nationally renowned, and the extra-curricular activities associated with it, stellar. It's increasingly expensive to live there; however, there are few better places to live in New Jersey--or anywhere else. I heartily recommend Monmouth Junction to anyone who can afford to live there.

I like the diversity in Monmouth. There are a lot of different races and the schools are very cool too, the shops are close for you to go shop. The saftey of this city is more better than other places I have visited. The environment around here is friendly people are very nice and not rude. The neighborhood is not scary at all there are kids playing around the park and moms all around the spirit of the schools here are very great the students get really enthusiastic about things going on in the community. I love Monmouth junction and it will be hard to leave that's why I feel like living next to south Brunswick to be more close when I go to college. I love Monmouth junction this is where family is.
The overall community is very safe and has great education. While taxes are very high, the town provides a great environment for families to live. In the future I predict the town will continue to grow in size, regarding residents.
