Cresskill: A Suburban Destination for Young Families

Located less than twenty miles from New York City, Cresskill is one of New Jersey’s top destinations for homeowners who want to enjoy the safety and serenity of suburban life without tacking on a giant commute to every workday.

An affluent community, Cresskill has many qualities that make it an attractive choice for young families, including a school district, Cresskill Schools, which promotes academic excellence.

Students who grow up in Cresskill have the benefit of diversity in their upbringing. With over twenty-three languages other than English spoken by the families that live here, the student body in any Cresskill School is culturally diverse. Among the diverse communities that make up the student body in Cresskill is the Asian or Asian-American community, which comprises 33% of the current population of Cresskill Junior-Senior High School.

Cresskill Junior-Senior High School has the benefit of small class size, another attractive quality for parents looking for a safe and wholesome upbringing for their children in proximity to New York City. Always putting academics first and striving for excellence, Cresskill Junior-Senior High School prides itself on these small class sizes, which allow individual interactions between teachers, students, and their parents.

Cresskill Junior-Senior High School offers fourteen AP courses as well as MCP courses in the Humanities and Physics. The school boasts the highest percentage of AP tests administered among public schools in New Jersey. It’s no surprise that many of Cresskill’s graduates go on to prestigious colleges and universities. In fact, staggering figures of over 90% of graduates of the school go on to attend four-year colleges.

Always on the cutting edge of educational standards, the Cresskill School District has embraced technology as part of its curriculum. The district offers full Internet access to students and has a computer/student ratio of 3:1. The district also has video conferencing capabilities.

As part of the greater Cresskill area’s dedication to growth and expansion of knowledge for all its residents, “Technology Week” is offered to residents each year. During this weeklong event, hands-on technology workshops are offered to all Cresskill residents, providing an excellent opportunity for an expansion of skills.

Further, to promote education across students and community members, Cresskill has a state-of-the-art library, which services all residents. With close to 63,000 books, 1,700 audio materials, and close to 1600 video materials, the library is an excellent resource for all residents. Further, hands-on technology workshops are offered through the library year round.

For those residents who are looking for a place of worship close to home, Cresskill has five churches within its borders. Residences in Cresskill are generally spacious and attractive, with many families residing in expanded capes and townhouses. Typical amenities include central air, fenced in yards, hardwood floors, and fireplaces.

Almost all residences provide a close proximity to schools, shopping, and transportation to New York City. The town is also situated with access to many major highways, making a car commute to and from New York City easy and possible as well.
