Nice family oriented community. High level of resident involvement with great pride in the school system and continuing a high quality neighborhood. Several generations of the same family reside in this community with many leaving for secondary education only to come back and raise their own children.

North Muskegon is a great place to raise a family. It is a very safe neighborhood, but tends to shelter kids from the atrocities of the real world. There are three lakes surrounding it, including Lake Michigan, which is great for activities year-round. The people are very friendly and most everyone knows everyone, but this also fosters a lot of drama in the town as everyone is in everybody else's business. The school is also a great academic community.
Great place to live and feel safe. Wonderful school system with teachers that truly care for their students.
