Named "One of the Best Places to Live" by Money Magazine, Maplewood is an excellent town with a lot to offer its residents. Maplewood is located 22 miles from Manhattan and is home to just over 24,000 residents. There are several well-maintained parks like DeHart Park and Memorial Park as well as a community pool that rivals any county club! A lot of residents spend summer days and evenings attending concerts, festivals or simply enjoying the towns beautiful foliage in the fall.
I always tell my clients to speak to people who have kids in the schools in order to get some "hands on" feedback. It always turns out that the parents who have kids in each and every one of our elementary schools, have nothing but very positive experiences to share. I can also set up school tours to allow for some real first hand information. It is critical that parents be involved in their child's education no matter where they attend school. Columbia High School consistently turns out top achievers who go on to many of the top Universities in this country.
We are very proud of our students!
Maplewood has an excellent public school system that it shares with South Orange. There are six district elementary schools, two middle schools and one high school.
Maplewood is close to many major highways, such as the Garden State Parkway, Route 78 and Route 80, making it a simple commute for those driving to and from almost anywhere in New York and New Jersey.
