    About Maplewood

    VISIT NEIGHBORHOOD

    Maplewood combines the charm of village life with the convenience of living just half an hour from midtown Manhattan, and is a thriving commuter neighbourhood. It first became popular with New Yorkers in search of some clear mountain air in the 1860s, after the railroad arrived. Among the earliest to discover its appeal was Theodore Roosevelt, who spent summers at his uncle’s Maplewood estate. Maplewood is a diverse and family-friendly community. The township has a downtown area alternatively known as "the village" or "Maplewood Center" with a movie theater, several upscale and mid-scale restaurants, a small supermarket, independent café, two liquor stores, a toy store and an independent bookstore.

    Maplewood School Information

    Columbia School District, serving Maplewood and South Orange, is comprised of  six elementary schools.  ClintonJeffersonSeth Boyden, and Tuscan are in Maplewood, and Jefferson/Marshall and South Mountain (which also includes students from Maplewood residing near the school) are in South Orange. There are two Middle Schools – South Orange and Maplewood Middle – while the acclaimed Columbia High School serves both Maplewood and South Orange communities.

    Columbia High School is known as one of the most academically progressive high schools in the state of New Jersey, and has been recognized nationally for its academic excellence with a Blue Ribbon award from the US Department of Education. Students can choose from a wide range of elective courses, including 24 AP classes, and every year Columbia High School sends alumni to top universities like Harvard, Princeton, Stanford and Yale. The extracurricular activities range from Future Business Leaders of America, a mock trial team, and an award-winning student newspaper and literary magazine to the chess club, championship athletics and music and drama. Hip-hop singer/songwriter Lauryn Hill is a former student here, but Columbia High School’s greatest claim to fame must surely be as the birthplace of Ultimate Frisbee, invented by students on the school grounds in 1968.

    Maplewood Middle School puts a strong emphasis on academic excellence and social responsibility as the foundation for all educational endeavours. This philosophy obviously pays off, as around one third of 7th graders are identified by the Johns Hopkins Talent Search and invited to take the SATs, usually taken by high school juniors.

    The South Orange-Maplewood Adult School, founded in 1933, is the oldest adult school in NJ and open to everyone from age 14 to 114. The inspiring program stimulates the mind, body and senses with high-quality classes covering everything from art and childcare to business studies and computer technology.  Most classes are at Columbia High School or South Orange Middle School.
    In the summer the school offers a highly praised children’s camp, the South Orange-Maplewood Community Summer Program.

    The South Orange Maplewood School District has had full day Kindergarten since 2009, which has been a huge factor for many parents in choosing a community.
