Dixfield Reviews

3 reviews
Dixifield is a great community full of good people, but there is unfortunately a lack of strong career opportunities in the area. This unfortunately leads college-aged young adults to move away to somewhere they can find better jobs. What Dixfield needs is more business moving into the town to attract high-skilled workers.

Quaint town, tight knit community. Schools have great athletics, but are a little lacking in academic opportunity. Athletics are held higher than academics. Very family friendly, and good for families with kids of all ages. Schools are close to one another.
I grew up in Dixfield, ME. The town's has a very strong public school curriculum and a family friend atmosphere.
