Every parent wants to give their child a head start in life. It starts early in the child’s development and sometimes very early, as in the instance of the parent who plays classical music for their baby while he or she is still in the womb. But nothing is as important as the quality of the education the child receives, especially when starting out.
If education is a priority, then you should consider looking at some of the Midtown Direct communities. Widely known for being home to some of the top public high schools in New Jersey, did you know that they’re also home to several of the top elementary schools? That’s right, according to data provider Niche, who recently released their 2019 rankings, half of the top 20 public elementary schools in the Garden State are located in Summit, Millburn and Livingston.
