Life in Catonsville is very average, maybe its because I've lived here all my life however it has very average lifestyles. The schools here are mediocre, there are good high schools such as Western Tech, average schools like Catonsville, and bad ones like Woodlawn all in the Catonsville area. I live near Woodlawn High School and went to Southwest for middle school so, from my experience, Catonsville is very diverse. Now, I am currently attending Western Tech and one of the highlights is an event in which students of all different cultures come together and represent their culture. So as a minority, I never feel out of place in Catonsville. There are never any crimes that occur in the Catonsville area and I'm never scared to walk on the streets in the morning hence it being a relatively safe place.

Catonsville is a great area, and it's much bigger than most people actually realize! I've lived here all my life and love the many local festivities around. The main street of Catonsville is a great street to find food and shopping.
It's very serene, with great houses and parks, and friendly neighbors. Stores, restaurants, and malls are nearby in at least a 3-mile radius, they are entertaining and clean. Navigating and transporting around the city is also easy because there are bus stops almost everywhere. Catonsville is also surrounded by greenery, with less poverty, it also has many recreational centers nearby. Hospitals and clinics are also clean and easy to find. The schools are also great and accessible in great environments. There are also many religious buildings, which are suitable and great for people with religions. There are also many jobs available at the stores and shops nearby. The real estate market is also good and easy to deal with.
