Typically a very safe area with a comfortable, suburban "everybody knows everybody" feel. As someone who attended in-district public schooling, I would say the schooling is a compelling reason to stay in district- for being a small district they really do a phenomenal job in the realm of education. We've recently acquired a few new restaurants and coffee shops that have pretty good service and food/drinks. Good place to grow up/start a family. The real estate is getting better, there's not an overwhelming amount of diversity (to say the least). Job searching is average and commutes are all over the place- I drive between 20-30 minutes to work/school, but I know people who commute 5 minutes as well as people who commute over an hour.

Spring Grove is certainly a safe and friendly environment appropriate for all ages. It is a small town so everyone knows everyone as a familiar face. The schools are safe, helpful, and top ranking in academic achievements. The only aspect keeping it from being perfect is the lack of entertainment in the town. It seems as if there is a limited amount of things to do for kids, teens, and families.
Spring Grove is an excellent town to raise a family. It's small but is a just a short distance from a bigger town. Spring Grove gives you the space you need to get away from all of the noise and buildings that comes with a popular town, but isn't too far away from fun places to visit. The only factor I would change about my town is the weather, but you can't really change that, unfortunately.
