For two communities located side by side, Freehold Borough and Freehold Township are quite different.
And so are their schools.
While the Freehold Borough School District is just 18% white, with more than 80% of its students Black and Hispanic, Freehold Township classrooms are the opposite. More than 75% of its students are white and fewer than 15% are designated African-American and Latino.
And these two neighboring districts are not alone.
