Mansfield is a growing suburb outside of Dallas. The town has really grown in the past 10 years that I have been here. Mansfield was rated #17 of the most safest and comfortable cities in the nation in 2015. In my experience of living in Mansfield, I have felt very comfortable. I can walk anywhere I want to without having any worries. The public school system is really reliable and focused on academics and success. We have a very diverse community that understands each others' differences. We have many shopping centers and stores that are being built around us to supply our needs. The only downside is that the living spaces are quite expensive and not very affordable. Otherwise, I believe my town is amazing!

Mansfield is constantly changing, and while some people may argue that isn't the best thing, I think it's absolutely amazing. It's changing to better its community for the community. I currently attend high school in Mansfield ISD and I have never been scared of what the future is going to hold because I have been prepared by the curriculum in MISD for anything that could be in my path to success. The roads are constantly being updated and there's always a place for me to go to have a good time with my friends. The local library is full of knowledge that's open to the community as well as the parks are kept clean for visitors! I love Mansfield and wouldn't want to be anywhere else.
I love the City of Mansfield, Texas. It is an up and growing city that has a lot to offer. The City has an excellent school system and is a family-oriented community. Our family moved here approximately 13 years ago and there wasn't that much here at that time. Since then, several schools have been built, hospitals, emergency care facilities, retail stores, fast-food, gas stations, grocery stores, parks, apartments, and a host of recreational facilities. The City is now working on toll roads and other major freeway improvements. I feel very safe living in the city. The crime rate is not high at all and for the most part the City is clean. Mansfield police department is cruising the area keeping the citizens safe. The Fire department is not far behind them at all with their impeccable first response in emergency situations! The City's growth is drawing more people to the it. With that being said, our taxes here are very high.
