Crime & Safety
- Public Schools
- Private Schools
This little town is brimming with excitement and things to do. Directly accessible from the train out of Philadelphia, there is shopping, great food, music, microbrew, farmers market, etc.
This is a very safe neighborhood to raise your family in. The police do their jobs well and crime is low. Generally, this is a quiet neighborhood but it is close enough to the city and very accessible by public transportation so that you will never be bored; there is always something interesting for you to do. We have a few events per year such as Haverford Township Day or the music festival and 5k runs that keep us involved and connected as a community as well as providing entertainment. The public school system is excellent for elementary and middle school children, but in high school you may find that it does not live up to the excellence of the previous schools attended in terms of administration and enforcement of rules. However, there are a lot of entry level job opportunities for teens in the area which keeps them active and contributing members of society.
I would love to see more diversity on the main line and less discrimination. It is a nice place to visit, but there isn't much in entertainment or out door activities.
