Montvale is small town with bug community. The schools are top notch, with an excellent recreation and sports programs for children. Neighbors are still neighbors and people take pride in heir homes, and surroundings. It’s a wonderful place to raise children. It also is convenient without being too busy. There are many shops, upscale Pilate, cycle and yoga studios, restaurants and modern conveniences that don’t involve much travel or traffic! I wouldn’t live anywhere else!

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.
