Governor Livingston High School
Governor Livingston High School, the home of the Highlanders, was built in 1960 on a former golf course in Murray Hill. It is named after the first governor of New Jersey, William Livingston. It is the only secondary school in the township, so students from nearby Mountainside bourough also attend it. Red and navy blue, the school's colors, are proudly worn throughout town in support of the school's many athletic teams.
Governor Livingston High School was ranked first in Union County by New Jersey Monthly and 8th in the state by Newsweek magazine in 2009.
