As a Realtor, I am often asked by home buyers, "how are the schools?" This is certainly a major concern for any parent or even prospective parent considering buying a home. Well, Forbes.com just named its "25 Best Schools for Your Housing Buck," and Basking Ridge, NJ (part of Bernards Township), was on the list. The magazine examined and ranked K-12 school systems throughout the United States.
The article points out that, among other things, Ridge High School maintains a near 100% graduation rate, administers advanced placement exams in 22 subjects, and that 96% of students in the disctirct score at or above state proficiency levels. And that's only half the story, the article goes on to discuss the high quality of life enjoyed by area residents.
