i loved the safe community, the public school system was terrible. the education was taught based on standardized tests. everyone was snobbgy. houses were over priced. great restaurants. not much to do in the town itself. the private schools were very prestigious, too expensive but a better education. very judgemental people. the teachers get paid too much to do nothing. very lavish houses. very pretty area overall. the roads are normally kept up to date with construction. the police officers are always driving around which made it much more safe. the area was very family oriented but you had to have money or a good source of income to live in the area.

The High school's renovations were incredibly. Along with new shops and restaurants at the waterworks mall and a new park openning along the river, my neighborhood has really boosted in the past few years!
I like how Fox Chapel is a suburb, so the houses have yards and the roads are not busy. However, it is very close to the city -- you can be downtown in under 20 min and to neighborhoods like Shadyside ever faster.
