With so many folks moving out of the big city, Summit has become a popular location, not just over the last couple of decades but specifically within the last year or two. This small-town feel with about 21,000 residents was originally incorporated as Summit Township by an act of the New Jersey legislature back in 1869. Summit was reincorporated as its own city in 1899 and is located on a ridge in northern and central New Jersey within the beautiful Raritan Valley and Rahway Valley regions in the New York Metro area.

Summit is home to multiple landmarks and historic buildings and the Summit Downtown Historic District itself is on the US Department of National Register of Historic Places. Buildings such as the Grand Summit Hotel, the Kent Place School, the Summit Diner, the public library, and Twin Maples are just a few of the poignant landmarks and historical buildings within Summit.

Summit NJ Schools

Summit boasts several high-achieving schools. Five elementary schools, one middle school, and one high school are managed by the Summit Board of Education. There are also several private schools including Kent Place School, Oak Knoll School, and Oratory Preparatory School.

The schools in Summit receive excellent reviews and ratings by parents and students alike. They received top marks for academics, student to teacher ratio, availability of clubs and activities, diversity, college preparation, and health and safety.

"Summit High School is a tight knit community. Everyone knows each other because we all went to school together since 1st grade! All students are pretty friendly to each other, both in and out of school on the weekends, so bullying, at least in my day, was never really a thing. Most people made an effort to include others, except a few rude people. I wish the school was more diverse, that would have better prepared me for college and life!" - Niche.com
