In Warwick, I like how everything is close to each other, such as stores and restaurants. However, change needs to occur within the Warwick school department. As of right now, clubs and athletics have been cut, in addition to textbooks for math. On top of that, they have cut the funding for chrome books, a vital instrument that we used frequently while I attended Warwick Public Schools.

This town has a lot to do. Whether that be by going to Iggy's for clam chowder to late night football games, it's a very family based town. I have loved living so close to an ocean which is a perk for this small town--it takes 10 to 15 minutes to travel to the closest beach. I truly believe this a good place to live if you are just starting out a family or want to be close to family. I wouldn't suggest it if you are just graduating from college or want to live by yourself.
For the past seven years, I have lived in Warwick with my aunt and uncle, who adopted me after the loss of my parents. Since then, I have learned much about the town and all that it has to offer. I am currently a part of its public school system, which is not the best, but still is much better than many others have been. There is much around the city to do, such as the Warwick Mall and the Route 2 area, both of which are very popular with the local crowd. Overall, Warwick is a very worthwhile town that I am very happy to have spent so much time in.
