As a student, having a small high school population was very beneficial, propelling me to the top of the class easily. However, Spotswood lacks diversity and academic opportunities outside of the classroom that involve STEM concepts.

Spotswood is an adequate small town with very friendly people. The township is on top of any and all situations that may occur throughout the year. Conveniently locate no less than 5 miles from route 18 and about 15 minutes from the Turnpike. So traveling is a breeze. Every year there is a small carnival they put on to generate town spirit and good vibes. The only thing they could fix is some of the pot holes in the roads. Other than that Spotswood is a decent town.
Spotswood is a great area to grow up. The schools are great, people are friendly, and the area is not too crowded. If you need anything, a store is always close by.
