What can I say Randolph is a great town I have lived in the town or the neighboring town for my 38 years. I personally went throught the school districts in Randolph and they are very good. Now several of my friends have their kids go to the schools. I also I have friends that are teachers in the schools and they are great at their jobs. Not to mention the education being very good but also the sports are very good too.
I would love to help teach you and your family the area so you can get adjusted to the area and finding the perfect place to call your home.
Please call me to schedule a interview

Randolph is a residential suburb located about 1 hour West of New York. It is quite rustic for the most part, with shopping and commercial areas concentrated mostly along Route 10. The vast majority of the township is residentially developed. The schools are often considered a strong point, and many buyers choose Randolph primarily for the good schools.
As far as the neighborhoods, the area North of Route 10 is the older section. Typical homes are in the $300,000-$550,000 range for the most part. This areas include Fernbrook and Mt. Fern. There are a few younger subdivisions mixed in like Woodland Hills and Arrowgate (condos), but it is mostly older and smaller housing stock.
As you move South of Route 10, you have areas like Ironia, Brundage Park, Center Grove, Mt. Freedom, Millbrook. These neighborhoods contain a mix of some older Bi-Levels and Colonials, but also many younger subdivisions of homes in the $400,000 to $800,000 range.
To the East is one of the more rustic areas within Randolph known as Shongum Lake. The neighborhoods surrounding the lake contain generally more expensive housing in the $450,000 to $900,000 range, although you can also find a smaller home that is more reasonably priced. Shongum Elementary is a very highly rated school.
Here is a Shongum Lake link:
As you move South, you get towards areas that border Mendham Twp. Areas like Brookside, Colemans Hollow, the Heritage neighborhoods built by Sal Campo, Mendham Lake Estates, Knightsbridge, Pleasant Ridge, Rolling Oaks, Heather Heights, Wexford Chase, Yorkshire Estates feature larger executive Colonials that generally sell for $800,000 to $2,000,000.

If you live in PA, you'll pay 1/3 less in state income tax and probably 2/3 less in property tax - for the equivalent house. Worst case, your property taxes will be at least 50% less in PA. Stroudsburg or East Stroudsburg are towns to consider.
It's very likely that you would save at least $5000 per year (that's conservative) living in PA vs. NJ. I save about $10K per year ... not too shabby.
Thanks and good luck!
It looks like you are getting plenty of information about the town of Randolph in these answers. I would also like to point out there are many surrounding towns in Morris County such as Mendham, Mendham Township, Denville, Kinnelon, Mountain Lakes, Rockaway and more that you may have interest in. You may even want to look south of Randolph. I grew up in this area and live and work here so if you would like to learn more about the Morris county area and other possibilities, I can help you.
There has never been a better time to buy with the tax credits available and interest rates that may save you up to $50,000 over the life of your mortgage! It's a great place to live and to be so close to New York City and yet enjoy natural surroundings is wonderful. Many of the towns in Morris county have wonderful, top rated school systems, easy mass transportation and great shopping. It is also prudent to consider the taxes of some towns as you compare. Some towns share regionalized services and schools, some have more commercial-business etc so the taxes are much more affordable. Most towns have homes that can range from $350,000 to multi million dollar homes depending on what you are looking for. Call me if you would like to talk and I do wish you heartfelt success in your home search.
