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.

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!
Upton is a beautiful small town surrounded by forest and neighboring towns have lots of things to do on top of Upton. I love living in a heavily wooded area that allows me to enjoy nature, but still be 40 min from Boston.
