    I lived in the area for 10 years and attended school from 5th grade into my third year of college. The public high school has large, and unmanageable class sizes, it is a good school for sports and arts. If your leaning more toward a technical career like engineering or business you can always attend Lehigh Career and Technical Institute from your freshman year of high school on.
    The area is quite, and populated mainly by growing families and the elderly. It is a 50/50 split between being a residential area and being an industrial one. There are many factories around the residential area, and you best learn how to drive in heavy truck traffic if you want to commute. There really is no night life to speak of in the area, but there are several shopping malls close by including a new one that just opened on route 222.
    The cost of living is mid-high range, and you are guaranteed to have to commute to wherever you work unless you work in the factory area.
    Review Breinigsville
    The area is continuously expanding and adding beautiful developments and town centers/shipping plazas that make it thus more appealing. The area is peaceful, beautiful, and safe. I love how access to anything is no more than 5-15 minutes away, while still being peaceful.
    Very nice town. Great school district. Level 10 elementary, level 9 middle and high schools. Great area for families. Plenty to do such as theme parks and winery's for the parents.
