I've lived in Asheboro for 14 years, and honestly I did not want to leave because of how much I have done here and all the friends I have made in school. The teachers in the schools are truly amazing, it does not cost too much to live in Asheboro, it's very diverse, most areas in town are family friendly, and most of the time traffic is not too congested. There are many places to work around Asheboro and overall Asheboro has treated me well since I moved a long time ago.
