I have lived in Brownsburg my entire life. I am now married and have a two year old and I do not see us ever leaving. We are out in the country part of town so it is not too crazy out here but we are close enough that we can run into town whenever we need to. They have a wonderful school corporation and it is turning into a very diverse community which I believe is very important in raising a well rounded and respectful child. I would recommend the town of Brownsburg to anyone and everyone, especially if you have children and are wanting a great school corporation!
I am currently a student in Brownsburg, IN and I love everything about Brownsburg! It has great schools, many activities to get involved in, amazing churches, and it is overall a close-knit community! I have had to pleasure of living here for over 5 years, and I am so happy that I've gotten to grow up here. It is a great place for families because of how many opportunities the town has for everyone.
