    Default Schools in NJ

    We are moving to NJ next year. I wanted some info on good school districts. My 10 & 5 year old girls are in a gifted and talented school currently. I'm looking for a comparable public/ magnet school with a strong focus on academics as well as extracurricular activities (probably too much to ask). Any information thrown my way will be welcome.

    I'm afraid I don't know much about the schools in New Jersey. My son has never been to school. Perhaps some of the other parents on here can help you out. I know that Montclair University in Montclair has a talented and gifted program for homeschoolers. Several people that we know have their children enrolled in that. What part of the state are you thinking about moving to.

    Each school within each District is different. Prior to moving, go the the State of NJ's Dept of education website. Each school in every district is given a report card. You can also meet with the principal. Speak with parents in the community about their experiences. I hope that helps.
    Good luck,

    My son has never been to school so I really don't know much about schools in New Jersey. I like the suggestion to go to the Board of Ed's website.
