North Andover is very safe and quiet. I do not like how unfriendly it is though. This is especially seen in schools. It is hard to fit in if you are new. Most people in North Andover have lived there since young and know each other, this makes people not keen to outsiders. Also, the majority of people are caucasian and may of them are rich. You often hear about people going on fancy vacations and going to their summer homes. The town majorly is conservative and Republican.

I've lived in North Andover for 15 of my 17 years of life, and I think that it's a relatively safe place to raise your kids in. I haven't gotten into too much trouble- granted, this town doesn't have too much to do. There aren't many restaurants around that are amazing- a lot of sub shops and Dunkin' Donuts, sure, but not many real sit-down restaurants. The schools are really nice and modern, especially the high school.
North Andover is a well-organised city with great schools like Merrimack college. This college has brought a lot of international students from across the world and in addition helped to improve small, medium and large businesses within the area. On the other hand, North Andover does not have a good transportation system as you will have to own a car or use a private taxi service (Uber) to enable move around. This system cannot be afforded by all, including students. I would want the transportation system to improve so that people can move freely and also come into North Andover without any transportation restrictions.
