The schools in South Amboy are quite small regarding number of students in the public schools. They built a new middle and high school. Graduating class size of each year ranges from 85 to 100 children. That is relatively small compared to bigger towns. There are private Catholic Schools located in South Amboy for elementary, middle and high school.
South Amboy has its Waterfront properties worth over $1,000,000's
South Amboy has very good recreational programs for every sport. They have beautiful football, baseball and soccer fields located in their Waterfront Park. They have travel and CYO basketball leagues, travel baseball teams. South Amboy hosts many of these leagues.
South Amboy has been built up and caters to many commuters into NYC. Train that will take you to either Manhattan or the Jersey Shore. I have placed many new married coupes in South Amboy and they love the town.
If you would like to see the town or some homes that are available, please contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or 732-236-5327
Hope this helps.
Also, it has more potential then almost any other town in New Jersey because of its small size, its development as a transit hub (with the new train station) and easy commute to New York/Newark. It also has plenty of waterfront, some of which is developed and some of which will be developed. It has a good mix of old and new homes, old and new residents, and a nice main street.
