"THE place to raise a family in South Jersey!"

Pittsgrove township is an anomaly in this day and age. A post-modern masterpiece, the community draws from as far back as the 1940s and up through the present day. Is it perfect? Certainly not. But it is about as close as you can get to perfect. The schools are some of the best in the state - Schalick High School is in the top 3 best group I size schools in all of New Jersey. There are plenty of parks including Parvin State Park (which has a lake in addition to the forest). There is plenty of youth sports and there are a few churches. It's a wholesome place to grow up. There is a lot of square mileage between your kids' friends' houses so you'll have to drive them around. And it's a good 10-15 minutes from the nearest highway (route 55) which goes both south toward Wildwood and north toward Philadelphia. If you're looking for a wonderful community off the beaten path, Pittsgrove is the best place to raise a family away from the negative influence of some of the rest of the towns and schools of New Jersey.
  • Rural and undeveloped
  • School system is unparalleled
  • Wonderful community
  • Farther out from major areas
  • Not a lot of shopping/dining options
