I relocated to Maywood on January 1st, and I have a step-daughter who just enrolled in Hackensack High. If you polled Maywood folks, I'm sure most would prefer Paramus over Hackensack, even if the entire town (not just 1/2 of Maywood, as now) would need to be bused. And that's a big cost. However, I think the chance of Paramus taking Maywood is ZERO. Paramus looks at Maywood as being a lower-income town, and they in Paramus want to preserve their own snootiness. Paramus is already a large school, and they would additionally feel that adding more students will increase enrollment. They would prefer a more close-knit school, and already feel the enrollment is too high. It's just not going to happen. Lodi has nothing to offer, as Hackensack is clearly better. Bogota, where Maywood used to attend, is packed to the rafters with students. Saddle Brook?  Also a tad snootier than Maywood, they won't want Maywood. There's literally nowhere to go. Maywood is going to continue it's sending relationship with Hackensack.
