A lovely suburb with up-and-coming businesses. South Brunswick is the best place for rich and poor families to attend top-tier schools that are near promising colleges. The markets and restaurants are divine as well! Religious services are plenty, and the police department is full of respectable folk.

My only concern are the inhabitants. There's an underlying problem with mental health and emotional abuse within families that leads to a troublesome social life. The middle schools are (pardon me) trash, the high school has its fair share of fights, and students overall are known to have dangerously low empathy levels.

South Brunswick is the perfect place to live. South Brunswick is full of outgoing, creative, energetic and trustworthy people. South Brunswick school districts are blue ribbion. South Brunswick morals are pure to help every individual child succeed in life. Wildlife in south Brunswick is beautiful good for sight seeing and just spending time with the family. Crime rate in south Brunswick is very low our township is very peaceful and everyone gets along with each other fine. Community functions such as international night where the community gathers together for festive games food and prizes. The Fourth of July where the community gathers around and watches the fireworks.
Too competitive but there is a great cultural community for all races. I grew up feeling proud of my immigrant heritage rather than ashamed, which is rare in this country. However, the diversity in the township translates to a cut throat high school education with teachers who don't always care and students who are not looking out for each other. It would be very good if not for that, which bumps it down to average. Also, it is very quickly becoming extremely commercial in the recent years. The township does not know how to say no to new development.
