Crime & Safety
Avon is a great place to live! Great schools And shopping. The only problem is the traffic. Getting to the nearest highway Can be problematic as there is always traffic on the road leading to the highway. Otherwise, A wonderful place to raise a family
What I like about Avon is the level of intelligence among the general population. Everyone is very well educated and kind to one another. It's a safe neighborhood and the public school system is excellent and competitive. There are plenty of nearby restaurants and it's a very family friendly environment. Though there isn't a ton to do in Avon in particular, you have many options in neighboring towns such as West Hartford, Simsbury, Collinsville, and Farmington--to name a few.
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.
