Coventry is a great place to live because it is quaint and respectful to all the residents. The school system is relatively good, however I wouldn't consider it the most significant attribute of this town. The best part of Coventry is the wonderful people that live in it, they're a lot of fun!

Nice town, fairly quiet. Good school system, with lots of opportunities. Fire taxes high, with several different fire companies for the different areas of town. Property taxes are on the higher side as well. Town services are good, however.
Coventry was a decent town to grow up in but with little opportunity. There is absolutely no diversity and few things to do (especially in the winter months). The elementary and middle schools are good but the high school is average at best. Not an awful town but certainly nothing special either, just mediocre in almost every possible way.
