I am planning to buy investment property in Basking Ridge. If I have investment property in this area, will my kid get admission in ridge high school?

Does anyone know if 22 Sentry Ct in Basking Ridge has sold? I noticed it has been removed from the active listings. Just wondering. Thanks
22 Sentry Ct. is no longer on the market. The listing expired on 7/15. It appears as if the owner has not yet decided to relist.
