As a parent, one of my first and foremost concerns is the quality of education my children will receive wherever we live. That being said, we have been living in Bound Brook, New Jersey for nearly two years now, and I have seen the school system here go from bad to incredibly worse. The community itself is great. The people are fantastic; it's a wonderful place to live. However, there is absolutely no excuse for a lax school system. Too much money is shelled out by the state and federal governments, too much effort is put forth by the teachers, the community, and the students. There is no excuse for our children to be lacking in educational services. I suppose if you are single or you have no school age children, Bound Brook could be considered one of the best areas in New Jersey to live in. I am just highly displeased with the schools here.
On a bit of a brighter note, there are some fun and interesting things to do here. There's Launch Trampoline Park, Core Helicopter Company which offers flying lessons as well as tours of the city, the Hardcore Paintball Center for some paintball fun, Grape Expectations Winery, and Little Dolphins Swim Academy for some swimming fun.
