Beech Grove is a very education-driven community, in my experience people usually move here to enroll their students in the schools. It is, like any other small town, an area where everybody knows your business before you do. Good people live here. It is religious based, even if this is not extremely apparent upon inspection. If you are looking for a good place to raise your children, this is the place.
Review Beech Grove
Beech Grove is a small quiet town, it's inside of Indianapolis. The public school system is okay, the communication needs to be better, but overall it's getting better.
We do have crime here, but I've not seen neighborhood watches. I've not seen may police officers around, though I do know that we have them because they do show in a timely manner when you need them. I've not seen them patrol neighborhoods for crime or watch, and sometimes there will be a lot of people speeding down some roads or streets but no cop to stop them because of it.
