I love the school district that Braidwood has too offer. There are many classes too select from and they offer different after school activities to fit everybody's needs. Also there are many great neighborhoods that are safe to play in with great people.
Review Braidwood
Braidwood is a small town with a strong community. There are a lot of town activities. The parks and Recreation Club are great gatherings for every one. Everyone in this town has a great attitude and are great neighbors.
The people here are not the best so I would probably live else where but the schools are amazing.
