Shillington is a very safe town, very family friendly, and a great place for healthy living. The houses in Shillington are very affordable and there are few foreclosures in the town. Shillington and its surrounding towns are not crowded so the commute time is perfect; it'll never take a long time to get anywhere! There are plenty of businesses, companies, and stores in Shillington and its surrounding towns so there are plenty of job opportunities. The only public school district in Shillington is Governor Mifflin, which is a good school that also has its flaws. The flaws of both the Governor Mifflin school district and Shillington as a whole lack diversity. The town is almost completely populated with Caucasians and barely any minorities. The nightlife in Shillington is almost nonexistent. There is nothing to do at night other than eating a fast food restaurant.

Shillington is a small town located near Reading Pennsylvania. The Governor Mifflin School District is located there with many students attending. Near the school there is a recreational park which provides space for many events like cross country meets, concerts, and birthday parties at the pool. Overall, the community is safe and friendly.
Shillington has a diverse social dynamic that can lead to conflicts between neighbors. The neighborhood used to mainly consist of older home owners from the outskirts of Wyomissing, but now many new residents come from Reading, the local city.
