Compared to other schools in NJ and the USA, it is undeniable that Cranford schools are pretty good.

But one thing sticks with me. A while back I spoke with an exchange student from Europe who spent some time in Cranford High as a sophomore. One of her remarks: “I was surprised they were covering material that we did in the seventh grade”.
