The Long Beach Island Consolidated School District serves children, preschool through the sixth grade for children residing in five of the six municipalities on Long Beach Island including Barnegat Light. There are two elementary schools, preschool through 2nd grade attend the Ethel Jacobsen Elementary School in Surf City and children, grades three to six attend the LBI Grade School in Ship Bottom. These schools typically have small classes, good and caring teachers, a lot of parental involvement and an active PTA.

The Middle and High Schools are located in Manahawkin, off the island. Southern Regional Middle School and High School serve Long Beach Island, Stafford Township and Waretown. The class size is a lot larger but the students are well served by a variety of class levels, clubs/activities and sports.

None that are odd - just to keep harmony. No fences . Pets fine - no lions. landscaping - no problem in most communities - with in 3 ' of the home. No pink water falls in the middle of the yard.
we have 90 + communities in Ocean and Monmouth counties with seniors living here. 10's of thousands of people. Only the real rebels will find it restrictive. However - that said you need to read the rules and regulations in the place you buy in BEFORE you make a final decision. I like to be left alone... USMC , Vietnam , purple heart - a little PTSD... I can cope - most others can too.

I asked a Jackson Twp policeman if he would have his mother live there. I was told NO. Now bear in mind that this was over 2 years ago, so maybe it's changed since then?

Yes...any of the properties south of Route 37 would attend TR South. It gets tricky on the north side of 37 when looking at the dividing lines for TR North and TR East.

This home is located in the area that attends BrickTownship High School. If you prefer a Catholic School the nearest is Monsignor Donovan in Toms River.

The two closest hospitals are:

Community Medical Center where two suggested routes may be (1) Hooper Ave to Rte 37 which is approx 9 minutes and 4.7 miles or (2) Rte 37 W to Cedar Grove , a couple back roads to Rt 37 which approx 10 minutes and 4.9 miles


Brick Hospital where two suggested routes may be (1) Brick Blvd to Shorrock to Rte 70 which is approx 16 minutes and 9.7 miles or (2) Brick Blvd right to Rte 70 approx 18 minutes and 8.6 miles

Of course all routes are subject to time of day and traffic

Francesca Patrizio answered:
I highly doubt it. Generally the location within which you live determine the school district associated with that location, unless of course you are willing to pay for a private school.

Realtors can send you queries based upon a particular school district. If you would like to share the school with which u seek, I'd be happy to send homes in and around that district. Simply contact me (1) via Trulia, (2) phone or (3) email (below)

Oh I forgot to mention you'd also have the option of placing the kids in the Monsignor Donavan School system which I believe is a Catholic based private or semi private school that also goes from K - thru -12th grades ...

Hi. Are you referring to Greenview Way off of Old Freehold Road? If so, it should be Intermediate North, but you can call 732-505-5500 to confirm. Hope this helps. Have a great weekend!
