Warren is a township located in Somerset County that is home to a population of approximately 16,000 residents. In 2009, CNN Money ranked the township as being #6 on its list of Best Places to Live in the United States. This high ranking comes from a combination of elements that Warren has that separates it from other areas in New Jersey and throughout the country.
There are currently 74 working farms located in Warren and there is approximately 1.5 acres of open space per house. This, combined with the township’s proximity to New York City, makes Warren a very interesting and different place to live. It is because of this that people are drawn to the area, knowing that there is something in Warren for everyone.
The school system in Warren was also another element that lead to the township’s high ranking from CNN. The Warren Township Schools serve students from pre-kindergarten through the eighth grade. There are four elementary schools, which include Central School, Mount Horeb School, Angelo L. Tomaso School, and Woodland School. Students in grades six through eight attend Warren Middle School. For high school, students from grades nine through twelve attend Watchung Hills Regional High School.
