While Trenton is lacking in terms of diversity and job opportunities, it certainly makes up for it in many other aspects. Trenton is a great place to settle down or raise a family. This close knit community gathers around each other when a tragedy strikes. I love the family atmosphere that is present here as well as the support system that is present. Sports are huge here, so the entire community comes out to show their love and support to young kids every chance they can get. The school systems here are wonderful and students truly receive a quality education. Many teachers here have a Master's Degree, especially at the local high school. Trenton is also a very safe town. Never do you have to worry about things a normal city would worry about. Overall, the town of Trenton is a happy place that is great for anyone.

Trenton is your average small town. This town is extremely family friendly and family oriented. The schools are great and provide an encouraging learning environment for the students that attend. I grew up here for some time when I was younger, I had moved away for a few years and ended up coming back and bringing my family along as well. I couldn't think of a better town to raise a family.
I have lived in Trenton my whole life. It is a small town with the normal small town problems. It is however, close enough to several bigger cities. I enjoy having the small town life and simpleness with the convince of the city just a short distance.
