great town atmosphere, everyone helps everyone type of place.The school is centrally located and has great staff with all sorts of opportunities for kids. They don't just focus on sports they also have great music and arts programs. This small town is much bigger than you think when passing by, we have music in the park events during the summer and even a local library. Our town participates in girl scouts and boy scouts as well as connections to 4-H programs small town life here is anything but lacking.

I liked the atmosphere there, its a family environment. It is a great place to raise a family. Also there is not to much trouble in Newfield. It is a pretty good area. They also have a great local dinner and a tourist location, which is the Covered Bridge. They also have the store the Covered Bridge market. Its like a little convenient store, where you can get groceries and some good pizza.
Newfield has employment, but specifically near the Douglas Road park there is little to no LEGAL employment. Newfield Central School, which is about ten minutes driving and a couple hours walking distance, has a lot of job opportunity for Newfield's citizens, but minimum wage is often what people get. Even the teachers complain about their salary.
