Green Brook is a township in Somerset County that is home to a population of approximately 7,300 residents. This township was established in 1932, taking parts of several different townships in the area and re-zoning it to create Green Brook.
The township’s motto is “Small enough to know you, large enough to get things done!,” which reflects the feel of the area very accurately. There is enough of a small-town feel to make Green Brook hospitable to residents of all ages and lifestyles, but is also powerful enough, due to strong neighborhood relationships, to make it’s mark as a fantastic place to live in New Jersey.
The Green Brook School District serves school-aged residents through the eighth grade. Two schools fall within this district – the Irene E. Feldkirchner Elementary School for grades kindergarten through third and Green Brook Middle School for grades four through eight. The Irene E. Feldkirchner Elementary School received the Blue Ribbon Award from the US Department of Education – the highest honor that a school in the United States can receive. Watching Hills Regional High School serves as the high school for grades nine through twelve in this area.
In order to ensure that every resident’s interests are represented, Green Brook has an active community outreach air about it. There are multiple organizations that exist throughout the township that acts on behalf of residents with specific interests. Some of these organization includes the Green Brook Seniors, which is an organization focused on needs for the older residents of Green Brook. There is also a Lions Club in the area that gathers volunteers to pursue community outreach activities.
