I have lived in Parsippany for over 20 years. I feel it is a safe place to live. I love the diversity of the community and accepting atmosphere. This aspect has been a very strong factor for me while raising my children here. I also enjoy the access to numerous major highways to connect me with different parts of New Jersey and beyond. I feel the public education system is like no other. It provides the students with a challenging curriculum, while also providing excellent services for others who struggle academically. Most of all it allows them the opportunity to develop into who they were meant to be instead of a “cloning” type of formula. This community best reflects my belief system in general— acceptance, equality and respect.
I love the whole environment in Parsippany! It is a very diverse and accepting place to live. I also really appreciate how much attention is put into the education systems here. I am grateful for the positive experiences that I have had. The schools support the athletics and even the arts which is an amazing thing to see!
