Mount laurel is a great town. No matter where you live, you are close to almost anything like stores, shops, restaurants... everything! The roads never really get jammed and you can always take 295 to get from one side to the other. The only downfall about mount laurel is that they are constantly building low income housing any chance they can get which has brought in some interesting people as well as kids to the mount laurel high school. The school is very crowded and packed and recently has been a place for fights in the hallway and smoking in the bathroom.

Mt. Laurel is a friendly, family oriented town! I've lived here for 15 years and we've been very happy. My kids attended the Mt. Laurel school district then on to Lenape and we've been very happy with the education that they received. There are many parks and walking trails in town with are great for family time.
Mount Laurel is a great town to live in! Community is friendly, everyone knows everybody. Overall, town is great with plenty of local stores, activities and an overall school district.
