Sparta Township

A Little Bit Country...

In the Highlands of Northern New Jersey you’ll find the town of Sparta nestled over 39 square miles including lakes, mountains and rolling hills. Close to 20,000 residents live a small-town life less than an hour’s drive from the hustle-and-bustle of Manhattan. (or make it a bus ride--the Lakeland bus line offers daily Sparta-NYC routes.) Prefer the train? A 20-minute drive brings you from your Sparta home to the NJ Transit train station in nearby Dover.

Hittin’ the Books

Educational choices abound in Sparta as well; in addition to the stellar public school system (in 2015, Newsweek ranked Sparta High School at 141 in the top 500 high schools nationwide, and in 2016, Sparta High School made NJ Monthly’s top 100), there’s also the Catholic Academy of Sussex, Sussex County Technical School, Veritas Christian Academy, Hilltop Country Day School, Sussex County Charter School for Technology and more.

Come Together

Sparta offers a tight-knit community which celebrates together (4th of July Fireworks, holiday parades, Sparta Day, races around the lake, etc.), and lends a helping hand (Pass It Along, Junior Women’s Club, MOMS Club and more.) Sparta residents also sleep soundly in their homes knowing they’re ranked fifth in Safewise’s Top 50 Safest Towns in New Jersey
