Crime & Safety
Avon has been a wonderful place to grow up. The entire school system is filled with excellent teachers, exceptional leadership faculty and support staff who always support students in all we do. Students are encouraged to participate in internships to help students discover areas of interest, and areas of future study. Local service agencies welcome students to volunteer and learn about the importance of civic involvement and contributions to help our community. I would highly recommend Avon to families searching for a place to raise their children.
In addition to Connecticut, I've lived in Maryland and North Carolina. I've found both those places to be warmer than CT in more ways than one! Residents here tend to be more curt, less diverse, less friendly. Cost of living and income are higher. Not much for teenagers to do around here. You can go to the next town for a movie or something. The trees are gorgeous, though.
I find it to be a very inclusive and liberal area. Moreover, the majority are quite literally. Overall, I enjoy the peace and quiet this town has to offer. I feel very content and comfortable here. The school's are rated highly in the town, as well. Moreover, I was even offered a job at my bank by banker within the past year. How exciting. Certainly, if I were not so content on completing my degree, I'd consider such an option. Lastly, it can become congested on the roadways. It's a bit pushed back from towns, which is why I'd imagine it's as peaceful as it remains.
