I have lived in Upton my entire life. It is the perfect town to feel like you live a cozy and perfect life. This is a town in which you know one another. Your neighbors will become your life long friends and your high school experience will be amazing. Upton offers 2 different and varied high school education options. The town is overall very safe and I have never felt like I was in danger. If I were to have grown up any other place, I would have not been given all the wonderful opportunities I have now. Overall, I think Upton is great place to live and I would highly recommend it for families looking for a place to call home.

Upton is a small town kind of in the middle of nowhere. There is not much to do around Upton, but the small-town feeling makes you feel at home. The people are friendly and it is nice to see familiar faces at local coffee shops and restaurants. The public schools are okay, but Blackston Valley Tech provides a nationally-ranked education for all.
Been living in this town for 2 years and haven’t been disappointed at all. We live in a quiet safe and friendly neighborhood with easy access to 140. Small town life at its finest. Great schools and safe place to live for sure!
