Several great middle schools, high school, and even small universities. Tight-knit community of hard working blue collar families. With a heavy presence of first responders, medical workers and educators, the neighborhood always feels safe and promotes the importance of education. Quite a few small businesses that ensure jobs and friendly environments.

Mt. Greenwood is a very close-knit community. Everyone knows everyone. The private schools are the most popular amongst the children, but venturing outside the neighborhood is rare for most.
The only crime present in this area are teenagers around Halloween trying to pull pranks that end badly, such as egging people's houses and cars. In the 15 years that I have lived there, there was only one instance when someone's bike on my block got stolen but was returned the next day. There's a police officer who lives on every corner and often patrolmen driving around. The only concern is that people are too trusting and tend to leave their house doors unlocked all the time except when they're not at home, even then, they sometimes leave the backdoor open all the time. Although nothing has happened, it's crazy to me how people are that trusting.
