Great school system with good academic and caring teachers but discipline is not handled properly. There is also not a bus system for the high school unless you live in Chichester. Sports fields do not have any outdoor lighting.Not much to do at night since we only have one restaurant in the area. Can get boring, but it is very family friendly. Pembroke moms can be a bit grouchy though, watch out.

The schools in Pembroke do well sports wise and academically wise. But, the school board administration has been extremely bad at managing money, so this caused the taxes to rise very high. It is a fairly quiet town after dark, and the people in the community are very nice and welcoming. The whole town gets together every year and we have Old Home Day, a day where everyone can just have fun and socialize. Its a small town feel, and everyone knows everyone.
Pembroke is a welcoming community with plenty of events at the town library for young children to participate at. There are many local walking trails and the town is relatively safe. The schools, however, seem to be struggling recently.
