Overall, Hopedale is just your typical small, quiet town. Not a lot of people live here, so you won't usually see any new faces after living here for a while. One thing you'll also notice is that there is practically no diversity here. The schools here are also very small, which can be either a good or bad thing depending on your situation. On the positive side, your child will get to know everyone in their grade, but the small size of the school also limits the class options later on. Basically, Hopedale is just your average small town.

Hopedale is a wonderful town to grow up in due to its its rigorous school system and the considerate community atmosphere. In difficult times, the community is always willing to come together to support those who need it. In addition, Hopedale fosters an environment in which people feel motivated to improve themselves and their community.
Small town and community. Very safe. Very family friendly, with walking trails around the pond, great schools and a great town park. Sometimes Hopedale can be clicky, since it's so small everyone knows everyone else and it can be intimidating to move here.
