Southington is a very big town, however there’s quite a lot to do here! There are plenty of restaurants, parks, and fun classes to go to. The people are very kind and I’m friends with all of my neighbors. Although Southington is great in some ways, I also wouldn’t give it five stars. The schools here, while academically impressive and challenging, are quite big and not a lot of changes have been made to improve the student’s quality of mental health, especially in the high school.
