Attleboro is not the best city to reside in, but certainly not the worst. The public schools need serious reform and renovation, but there are private schools as an alternate option. Safety really depends on the area you are looking at. More affluent neighborhoods near Rehoboth and North Attleboro are definitely the safest, as some places in and surrounding the center of town can get a little scary. This being said, Attleboro does have an amazing police department who is ready to respond at any given time, which makes me personally feel a lot more comfortable living here. Taxes and house prices are good but may increase in the near future due to the building of the new high school. As far as night life and "things to do" goes, there is not much to Attleboro itself, but we are thankfully surrounded by much livelier towns and Rhode Island is right next door as well. Overall, Attleboro is a diverse city with a rich historical background, but there is definitely some work to be done.

Attleboro Is a quiet town. Everyone respects each other no matter what economic class or ethnicity they come from. People are prone to making others feel welcome and they help each other. This town offers lots of jobs, even students have a chance to work part-time while working however these jobs are taken by middle-aged people, which I think is a factor on why some teenagers cannot be employed which leads to them being dependent on their parents’ work.
As a new driver, I really appreciate the presence of the police on the side of the roads, especially at night when people speed. When I used to not drive, I took public transport and sometimes I was disappointed on the persistency. This was a disadvantage since I would be late for work. I've always felt safe walking around my town no matter what part of the day.
I just recently moved to Attleboro but I love it! There is a lot of diversity for a suburban area, and everything you need is close by! I almost never have to go out into the city for anything and the people are very friendly. You can get a lot of land for much cheaper prices than the city and it is a very quiet neighborhood.
