Great town, I have lived here for 5 years, and it was a great move! There are many activities town wide, and associated with South Windsor Schools. The school have a great staff, academics, and extracurriculars. There's a variety of well performing sports teams, and music as well, which is something that I am passionate about. I am proud to say that South Windsor meets many of my needs as a citizen and as a teenager in this town. The middle school also provides a lot of things that aren't available at most public middle schools.

South Windsor is a great town that offers activities for all ages. The town keeps clean and fixes any issues regarding roads, especially during our snow storms. People are friendly and we have an amazing park that even has its own dog park! South Windsor is also dog friendly and you can see people walk their dogs through Evergreen Walk where stores offer treats and water.
I enjoy living in south Windsor because it is close to everything! The town is clean, safe, and offers nice shopping areas. It is close to the highway and you can easily get from town to town living in south Windsor. I hear the schools are great despite never attending and I know many people move here just so their kids will be in a good school system.
