Pequannock is a small town that has a tightly knit community. Everyone knows everyone in the town which makes for a friendly and positive place to live. The education system is average as it offers classes that are seen in every high school and is good enough to get you into a state level college. It is a very safe town as the crime rates are fairly low, and as a lifetime resident I have never felt in danger. It is family friendly as the town is safe and has many activities and sports teams for the town. Overall Pequannock is a great town the offers a lot despite it's size.

There are some great things about Pequannock and there are some bad. I’ve lived here for 6 years.
The good: I feel VERY safe here. It’s a great location in NJ with lower taxes. The police here are fantastic. The garbage collection is also amazing, they take almost anything!! (Maybe it’s weird to get excited about garbage but I’ve lived in towns where they take nothing!)
The bad: It is very difficult to break into the social circles here if you did not grow up in Pequannock. Everybody knows each other and while they seem friendly to outsiders, they will not readily become your friends. In terms of the schools I am less than impressed (I have 3 kids). First of all, this is NOT the place if you need special ed. It is very difficult to get services. Also, they have the kindergarteners doing 1st grade work, which maybe some people like, but I think is not age-appropriate.
I currently attend PTHS and would recommend this town to families looking to move to a safe and friendly town. Almost everyone knows one another and is very friendly. You can walk to almost anywhere in town!
