We currently live in the area and LOVE it! We moved from New Mexico and have not had too much of an adjustment (other than weather :))

Dear Alisha,

I know just how you feel...having to pick and move to an area completely unfamiliar. I had to do that when I moved here (near Hackettstown) three years ago.

Having children in school systems, a husband who grew up in the Hackettstown area, a small business to run, I quickly became knowledgeable and well established in the community. The good news is I am a neighborhood specialist for Hackettstown and its surrounding areas.

I am quite knowledgeable about the school systems in the surrounding areas since my daughter will attend one school district and my stepsons attend another nearby school district. I can send you some more information or feel free to visit my website to get community reports.

If I can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.

You can get alot of information on schools from the following sites...

State of NJ maintains a "report card" on all schools in the state......Read these reports here:

Two independent sites worth reading are:
http://GreatSchools.net (includes student and parental comments)
http://SchoolMatters.com (from Standard and Poors)

good luck

Hi, I grew up in a town not far from Hackettstown, Long Valley. Excellent school system, Nice quiet community. My BIL has a son in Hackettstown school system. Not that great. Long Valley, Mount Olive, or Chester, really nice. (Taxes are up there, though!)
Good luck!

I live only 8 miles from Hackettstown! There are some great school systems in the area. Hackettstown, Clinton, Lebanon, there's a whole bunch. Do you need info on high schools or grade schools? When will you be moving? Shoot me an email at jeffreyvroom@yahoo.com and I'll gather the information you need.

I like Hanover or East Hanover it's a good area taxes and home prices are reasonable, plus job centers are very close. I also have a community tool to look up stats of areas and that will give you a good idea of whats going on out there, you can always contact me for more info if you have any questions
