To think of it, I am fairly privileged to live in a town that is so safe compared to many others. However, the first thoughts that come to my mind when I think of the town, are negative thoughts. The school had a drastically negative impact on my mental health not only because of bullying by other students, but also bullying by teachers.

Northvale is a small and personable town with close knit community. The school system is great and offers many opportunities to enhance children's education. I plan on staying here and raising my family in the same place my parents' grew up and raised me.
I moved here in August of 2009 and I think people here are somewhat diverse, but many of the people have lived here their whole life. Therefore, in regards to race and ethnicity it is mainly similar races.
