I moved to King of Prussia when I was 10 and am currently 17. As the city develops into a busy, overpopulated money machine, I've realized several things. King of Prussia has always been incredibly safe. The illegal activity is so low that the cops do nothing. The diversity is terrible and this probably contributes to the cop activity but this also makes the city boring. There is nothing to do here and it has a very negative effect on the kids. You either do sports or nothing with your time. This means the kids have a lot of time to spend on the internet, inside, losing social skills.
If you live alone and quietly, this city is terrific, at least currently, if you have kids, maybe try to find somewhere with more things for them to do or get them into sports.

The city isn’t great or bad it’s mediocre I guess. I see a bunch of crime in one part and less in one part. And everyone says how great the Upper Merion school district is it’s really an annoying school district. Teachers don’t help you if you do bad, kids are fake, rumors l, drama, fights, kids smoke/vape, kids are bad influences, kids act up and get in trouble. That’s what the Upper Merion school district is like. Also including the middle school and high school.
King of Prussia is that city where it’s bad and good. The bad parts of town are:

Brandy wine village
Henderson/Valley forge homes
Hughes
Swedesburg
Swedeland

Good parts of town:
Canon run west
Abrahams/ Lowell Hills
Belmont Terrace/Dartmouth Hills

Now not saying those parts don’t have crime or bad parts inside of those neighborhoods it’s just those are the more safer parts.

Town center is average it’s bad and good because it’s bascically the downtown of Upper Merion with a somewhat crime
