Crime & Safety
Living in Montvale has been the best for me and my family. I've lived here my whole life, and had the perfect place to grow up. I have a neighborhood with really friendly and helpful people. I met some great friends here. There was always a place to walk to when I was younger hanging out with friends, going to 711 or to grab a slice of pizza. The school system is also very good, all the teachers are friendly and very good at what they do. I do not know if I would have wanted to live anywhere else.
Montvale is a wonderful place to live and raise a family. The community is diverse but unified in the same values, where children are he priority. The school system is superb, as is the recreation programs offered. There are restaurants, shops and conveniences without the loss of the small town feeling, of wholesomeness and safety.
I've lived in Montvale for a good part of my life (since 6th grade). Its always been a nice peaceful place to live, and I have many good memories here. We always had to improvise though because there wasn't (and still isn't) much to do around here besides bowling... since they've just decided to scrap the town pool. I think that may be why so many kids from here end up messing with drugs and alcohol. It can be pretty boring if you're young. They should build a skatepark...
