641 Plainsboro Road Plainsboro, NJ 08536 609-799-0909 fax: 609-799-3194 Plainsboro Township is a dynamic community located midway between New York and Philadelphia that has successfully made the transition from a rural farming community to a vibrant, diverse community of 21,000 people.
Plainsboro Village, the original settlement in the Township with buildings dating from the 18th Century, is benefiting from controlled growth that is guided by the Plainsboro Village Area Master Plan.
31.2% of all households were made up of individuals, and 3.8% had someone living alone who was 65 years of age or older.
The average household size was 2.43 and the average family size was 3.14. For every 100 females ages 18 and old there were 96.4 males.
In response to the development, West Windsor-Plainsboro High School South was opened in nearby Princeton Junction, then just called WWP High.
To accommodate the additional growth, West Windsor-Plainsboro High School North was opened in Plainsboro in September 2000, beginning a North-South rivalry between the Pirates and the Knights.
