I love South Burlington! Cute community and safe! The schools are great, and I love it here! It's a very family friendly community, with good schools, and safe neighborhoods.

Need more mainstream restaurants and stores. We need a TARGET! Apart from needing more shopping and food places, the roads need to be expanded. Chittendecounty is getting to be a drag because the town cannot accommodate the number of people moving here. We also need updated affordable housing in the worst way.
SBHS is a very accepting high school. It may sound cliché but there really is something for everybody! Because a group of new students come from the islands after middle school, there's always an influx of new kids; everyone is very friendly and social and welcoming.
