I love Clarence! I grew up here. Friendly community. In the middle of everywhere I need to go. The school system is one of the best in the area. I always feel safe never had any issues. Family friendly neighborhoods lots of kids around. Houses hold their value, although they may be more expensive.
I think Clarence, New York is wonderful place to live. I have grown up and attended schools within the Clarence School district. The area is safe and family friendly! I could not imagine living anywhere else. Clarence has given me many opportunities to persue my dream in music. If it wasn't for Clarence and their schools, I would have never been so successful academically and socially. Clarence allowed me to make my Broadway debut at 18 years old. I want to keep that dream alive as I attend college these next couple years. Clarence is my home and is my family.
