The Montgomery school district is consistently rated highly; and there are fewer schools in the district than in other comparable school districts so the pupil to teacher ratios are considered excellent. If you want open space, and good value for your money, Montgomery is a great place to live. Although the taxes can be high, and there is still well water and septic systems prevalent throughout the Township, Montgomery is deemed by many to be a wonderful community with lots of amenities. According to the Township website, the latest U.S. Census Bureau estimate for 2012, recorded approximately 22,425 people residing in Montgomery.
As with much of this area of central New Jersey, Montgomery has great historical significance. Established in 1702 by Dutch and English settlers, the Township is only about six miles from Princeton University and roughly halfway from New York City and Philadelphia. The 32 square mile community is part of Somerset County with nearly one-third of the Township preserved for open space or farmland.
Montgomery Township is really divided into three communities: Skillman, Belle Mead and Blawenberg (the latter a tiny unincorporated area within Montgomery Township). Although part of Belle Mead is actually in Hillsborough Township. If you want wide open space, great schools and a wonderful family-oriented Township, Montgomery has a lot to offer.
