Midland Park

The Cost of Education in Midland Park & Surrounding Towns

12/29/2012 08:47PM ● By Rebecca K. Abma

Wondering how Midland Park educational costs compare to nearby districts? Midland Park Press took a look at the Taxpayers' Guide to Education Costs to compare what we pay in Midland Park with other nearby communities. We looked at factors such as total spending, enrollment, total cost per pupil (CPP), classroom instruction CPP, median teachers salary and building maintenance and operation CPP.

We opted to use figures from 2010-11, which were available for all of our chosen markers for all the districts we looked at. Each district is linked to its "report card" on the NJ Dept. of Education website. Here's a look at the numbers, and how Midland Park stacks up:
