From what I have heard, there is no residency requirement in Hudson County (or at least parts of it). I know there are many students in the Hoboken schools who live in Jersey City. I'm not familiar with the details of how they enroll in Hoboken but you might call the Hoboken Board of Ed. or the Jersey City Board of Ed for more info.

Hi James. Jersey City isn't my market area so I am not too familiar with the school system or how it works but in most towns that is exactly how it works...children attend the school zoned within their address. With that being said, it is not always the case. Sometimes the school may have reached their quota and a child will have to attend a different school within that town. I never quote the exact school instead advise my buyers to contact the school district directly to confirm what school their child would attend should they buy a house in that neighborhood.
Today, most schools have Web sites where you may find an answer to your question. If you don't find the answer, you will at least find contact information that will direct you to someone who can answer your question. A Google search usually turns up the links you will need. If you have a specific school in mind, enter that school's name in the search criteria.
