Everyone in the town is super nice and friendly to each other and outsiders! The school district is awesome, there are plenty of places to work and relax, and it is very safe and quiet in the neighborhood. I wish there were more resturaunts in the immediate vicinity although as there are only a few small places that serve very niche cuisines

I’ve grown up in Medfield and have never had a negative experience with any of the people here. The vast majority of the kids at the high school are nice. The worst part about living in Medfield is there’s not much to do, but it’s near more exciting towns. The schools are hard but prepare you very well for college.
Overall, Medfield is a nice, safe place to grow up with excellent public schools. Over the past few years, some new restaurants and things to do have been introduced, and there is easy access to Boston through the T in Walpole. This is a great community that I will remember fondly for the rest of my life.
