Marlboro in Top 50 Safest Places to Live in Jersey

Selecting a community where you and your family will live is important to your overall well being and more important than the house itself.  Of course, the perfect house is important, but you are also buying into a community, a place where you will live, shop, go to school, and participate in community activities with your neighbors.

SafeWise paired data from the FBI’s Crime in the U.S. Report with their own comprehensive investigation and created a list of the top 50 safest communities in New Jersey, with 15,000 residents or more, as of 2011 . . . and Marlboro is on the list.

A few of the unique and special things about Marlboro are their Teen Advisory Committee and Economic Development Committee's Shop Marlboro program.

Your first step should be to sit down and make a list of what features are in your perfect home and organize the items into 3 main categories:

Marlboro Schools Will Offer Full-Day Kindergarten!

Starting with the 2017-18 school year, the Marlboro School District will offer full-day kindergarten.

The Marlboro School Board approved a $1.94 million plan to renovate computer labs at four elementary schools and convert them into eight additional classrooms to accommodate the kindergarten students. The original plan to build 28 new kindergarten classrooms was rejected by voters, so the district found an alternative way to make it happen . . . to the delight of many local parents.

Superintendent Eric Hibbs said, "There will be more time spent on the individual needs of our students. The increased time will allow for a greater emphasis on social skills and a day filled with varied educational opportunities and experiences."
