Pennington is a great place to live if you have kids, as well as a family friendly atmosphere. Schools in Pennington are great for preparation for college as well as one of the best school systems in Mercer County.
Review Pennington
Pennington is a great area to raise a family and to grow up in. However it is known for its protective bubble around its kids that may not set them up for the real world. So safe and encouraging though. When I'm done with college Id like to do my test pilot student teaching years at the high school I went to.
I think our police are good. However I doubt they went out to check on the deer I called about which was upsetting as someone had clearly just hit the poor thing.
