I grew up going to Maplewood (Penncrest School District). Out of any city and state that I have lived in since attending this school, I would have to say that Maplewood is the best place to raise your kids. It's a small town school and everyone is willing to help. I didn't come from a poor farm family. My parents were blue collar hard working individuals and we were middle class (not lower). The teachers are willing to help a student 1 on 1. The extracurricular activities are quite broad for not having more than 1000 students. If you are looking for a safe environment, with great teachers, and a great curriculum, go here.
Maplewood does well for being a rural school. The teachers are almost always lifelong residents of the area. There is very little violence. The majority of the students come from poor families, farmers, etc. The sports programs are decent but suffer because of the distance between students' homes and the school (which is located far from anything.
