Crime & Safety
Robbinsville Township Reviews
A very safe and relatively quiet town. Good schools, lovely homes, local businesses and some chains. It has some historical flair to it, along with an interesting amalgam of homes. The homes range from mansions in large neighborhoods to quaint stand-alone homes in wooded areas. It is a very walk-able, bike-friendly town and it's common to see people out walking. The Hamilton Train Station is only about a 5 minute drive away, lending easy access to mass transit into the city. Additionally, there are a couple of bus stops in the town, and a direct hook-up to Route 33 and Route 130. I would like a grocery store to replace the ever-vacant building where Marazzo's Grocery once stood. It is rather inconvenient that the nearest grocery store is a drive away in the next town over. The cost of living is a bit high, but it's a small price to pay when you consider the safety, cleanliness, diversity, and strong sense of community that this little town offers.
Robbinsville high school as well as Robbinsville township school system is great. It is a small community school where everyone knows each other. Small school means less students which means educators focus a lot more on each student. As an international student, it is very important to receive more attention in all the classes, and Robbinsville township school system provided just what I needed. After graduation, no one even believes that I can speak both languages because I have no accent, and I am thankful for the school. My family will be moving with their children, and I recommend the area. Schools, people, living is great in this location.
My current address is Robbinsville, but I went to Allentown. Despite the fact that Robbinsville was Allentown's rival in most sports, I have learned in the past few years that not only is Allentown a fabulous place to grow up, but Robbinsville shares many aspects and is just as lovely. Years down the road, when I have children, I would not be opposed to raising my children in this area. Throughout high school, all of my teachers cared deeply about my learning experience, I moved to this area from Hamilton, New Jersey, after moving here my grades immediately went up! Not only was my education better than it had previously been, the community in Allentown was lovely. Robbinsville students and Allentown students would get together weekly in high school to play dodge ball, it gave a fantastic sense of community. In fact, our eagle scouts banded together to make nice benches for our dodge ball court, and also fixed the fencing around. I have been very fortunate to grow up in such a wonderful area!
