Danvers is an amazing town in which to grow up. For parents and young children, the parks and recreation program is second to none. There is always something going on to bring the community together! Whether it's Ice-Cream for Breakfast, the Bean Supper, little-league and softball parades, holiday/religious ceremonies that support all denominations, or fundraisers and charity runs to help neighbors in need, our community supports and celebrates diversity! Sports, theater, and academic excellence are pursued with ardor at all levels. You can visit the mall, a beach, a farm, a park with a children's barn and fishing pond, biking/hiking trails, and even a dog park, all without leaving town. It's simply a terrific place to live!

From the perspective of a graduating high school senior:

Public schooling has done me well. Danvers High certainly made me well equipped for college; I had a 4.0 GPA, took 7 AP classes, made it into 4 honor societies and got three club memberships for my applications. I was accepted into 12/15 colleges (waitlisted by 3), and committed to Smith College, which has a 32% acceptance rate.

As for nightlife, I wouldn't say there's much to do here; it's the suburbs. We have malls to shop at, restaurants to eat at, fast food places to drive to...

Healthy living: what I love about living here are the opportunities for walking! We have a lot of rail trail access points, as well as other woodsy trails nearby. I can walk miles a day from my own house and not be bored.

Not much to say about anything else.
Go falcons!
I moved to Danvers when I was nine years old. I was going into 4th grade, and being that young in a new environment is not easy to adjust to. It took time and effort, but I eventually made Danvers somewhere I could call home. It was so much more welcoming than I expected, and the people were terrific. I appreciate this town because it's helped me make lifelong friendships and shaped me into the person I am today. It's offered me so many memories and experiences that are unforgettable. Danvers is somewhere I can be at peace.
