Holmdel is a township in Monmouth County, which was formed in February 1857 from portions of Hazlet, NJ (known as Raritan Township at that time). Holmdel is a small town with a quiet, rural feel. The name Holmdel came from the Holmes family, who were major landowners in the area in the 19th century. It was in this town that Robert Wilson and Arno Penzias discovered the cosmic microwave background radiation in 1964. The town has come a long way from its humble agricultural origins. The town's picturesque beauty, proximity to New York City and main highways, award-winning schools, large homes, rich history, PNC Bank Arts Center, and many high paying jobs within commuting distance has led Holmdel to be ranked the #1 "Six-Figure Town" by Money Magazine and CNN for 2009.
The Holmdel Township Public Schools serve students in K-12th grade. Schools in the district (with 2005-06 enrollment data from the National Center for Education Statistics) are Village Elementary School (K-3; 965 students), Indian Hill School (4-6; 821), William R. Satz School (7&8; 596) and Holmdel High School for grades 9-12 (1,184). Holmdel High School was the 11th-ranked public high school in New Jersey out of 316 schools statewide, in New Jersey Monthly magazine's September 2008 cover story on the state's Top Public High Schools. The high school was ranked as Number 426 nationwide in Newsweek magazine's listing of "America's Best High Schools" in the August 5, 2005, issue. Private schools within the township include the Roman Catholic Diocese of Trenton's St. John Vianney High School and St. Benedict School, a kindergarten through eighth grade Catholic school that feeds into St. John Vianney. Some students attend Ranney School in nearby Tinton Falls, a K-12 preparatory school, or Christian Brothers Academy (a.k.a. CBA), a Catholic all-boys 9-12 preparatory school in adjacent Lincroft.
As of the census of 2000, there were 15,781 people, 4,948 households, and 4,328 families residing in the township. The population density was 878.4 people per square mile (339.1/km?). There were 5,137 housing units at an average density of 285.9/sq mi (110.4/km?).
