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.

Great little town in the middle of everything! 10 minutes from tons of beaches, malls, and only 25 minutes from Boston.
Norwell is a small suburb or Boston, MA that i have been lucky to grow up in. I am so grateful for all that the education system here has given me. The small classroom sizes allowed for focused learning, and the ability to choose electives in high school gave us opportunities to explore our interests before college. Our town is extremely safe, albeit quiet at times because of it. There is a strong sense of camaraderie due to how small our graduating classes are. We know that each peer is like a sibling, we may not all get along but we all look out for one another.
