I lived in Norwell from the age of 4 until I left college. It was a wonderful town to grow up in. The schools were excellent and you had the feel of an almost rural town while being minutes from the highway and only a half hour from Boston. The primary downside is the affordability. While I would like nothing more than to raise my family there, financially I am not in a position to purchase a home there.
Norwell has great schools, is extremely safe, and is very beautiful. It provides great opportunities for kids through excellent academics and competitive sports. However, there is very little diversity and the people are pretty snobby. Parents who have children at the schools are known to complain despite their children having amazing academic experiences.
It's a bubble. This is not the real world. Mostly everyone here is rich, white, Catholic, and conservative. This town screams entitlement. Luckily, everyone is educated here. The public schools are excellent and students have great opportunities here. The high school sports teams are strong as well.
