A tiny and tidy municipality of barely 10,000, with one of the 20-highest per capita incomes in the state and the nation, Franklin Lakes is home to some major corporations and their leadership — and has been since its founding almost 100 years ago. (It also has the dubious distinction of being home to the notorious reality TV show The Real Housewives of New Jersey.)
Franklin Lakes has two school districts that are just as successful as its residents — one for the three elementary schools and the middle school, and one (shared with nearby communities) for the high school, as part of the Ramapo Indian Hills High School District. Students also have the opportunity to attend the highly regarded magnet school Bergen Academies. The local educational foundation has helped to make the schools in this small district showcases of learning, including state-of-the art computer technology, fiber-optic hookups, and enrichment programs.
