I have just moved here April a couple of years ago and I love it! The air is so much cleaner and all the people are so nice. My brother will be attending the middle school this upcoming fall and we are so excited for him to start his education here.

A little bit uppity, but very clean and quiet with lots of farms and fresh produce. The schools seem to have a hard time helping students with learning disabilities (in my experience).
It's a safe place, no a lot of crime! I have even looked up sex offenders and there's only two compared to Leominster a fitchburg who have over 50! There's a nice private beach and a great community. The school systems are amazing as well, my sons are blessed to be able to attend and get the best education!
