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.
North Andover is a great town and community. It has excellent public schools and is a safe, nice community. There aren't as many exciting places for night-time venue. But it is close to Boston and does have some great places to eat and close places to find entertainment.
