I moved from Normandy, MO to High Ridge, MO. I lived in Normandy my entire life. High Ridge is so nice. The neighborhood is quiet, I feel safe when going out for walks, the neighbors are very friendly! The local community is very active, the school district is phenomenal! (which was our main reason for moving)

High Ridge is surrounded by extremely friendly people and well-maintained housing. It is near many major highways, allowing easy access to any necessary locations.
I currently live in High Ridge, Missouri. I love the quietness of the town, and the fact that it isn't busy like a city, but it's also not dead like a middle-of-nowhere town. Fenton, MO is a close drive, where shopping places like Gordmas, TJ Maxx, and Target can be found, but there's also a wal-mart within 5 minutes of High Ridge. There is a local library that has children programs going on frequently, and a wonderful children's librarian. There are absolutely no downfalls to living in High Ridge, and I would recommend it to everyone!
