Town Overview

Plainsboro Township is a community that has successfully made the transition from a rural farming enclave to a vibrant, diverse community of 21,000 people. The result of the Township’s careful planning is a balance of open space and development, with over 50% of the Township permanently preserved as open space. The West Windsor-Plainsboro Regional School District is a highly-renowned school system (96% of the students go on to college, and the district has the 4th highest SAT scores in NJ). The school system is consistently ranked as one of the best in the State of New Jersey. Plainsboro has varied housing opportunities that mark the area as a desirable home for a wide range of lifestyles. Housing includes single-family homes of various sizes, apartments, condos and town homes, senior housing and affordable housing, and historic/older homes and neighborhoods.

The New Jersey Transit and Amtrak station in Princeton Junction is about 2-3 miles away.
