Review Tenafly
Tenafly offers a variety of classes that prepare you for the challenges of college. Every year I am challenged to go above and beyond in my academic career. It is hard not to push yourself because you are surrounded by a community of talented students that prioritize school work over the social events.
Very safe area, good for raising a family, excellent public schools, but also incredibly boring. There are also a ton of nail salons in town.
