Cherry Hill is good family town, its safe, a good place to raise a family, have them get an education, etc. The Cherry Hill Public School System is also much superior than other public school systems. The nightlife is pretty boring theres not much to do other than shop and spend money. Its not the most affordable town to live in, nor are the job opportunities anything crazy. I would like to see more things to do in Cherry Hill that doesnt involve shopping or spending money. Theres a big mix of people too with many different cultures and experiences coming together to form a strong community. The commute time isnt too bad, and the real estate market is okay. Overall growing up there, Im not sure if I wouldve wanted to grow up in another town.

Excellent, friendly community. Very safe and family friendly. Great schools and definitely healthy community! Lots of people out on runs. Location awesome.
In general, Cherry Hill feels like a small town with nothing more than the basic commodities. On the west side, there is cheaper housing and some chain businesses. On the east side, there is more expensive housing in the neighborhoods surrounding Cherry Hill High School East. The town is safe, with very few violent crimes and hardly any racism around. Although the town itself is pretty average, the public schools leave much to be desired. Neglected buildings, burnt-out staff, lackluster curriculum, and over-reliance on district and state tests plague the schools here. Overall, a decent place to live, as long as kids are sent to a private school instead of the public school.
