I love living in Wayne Township, the school system is wonderful and I wouldn’t want my children attending school in any other school district. I attended Wayne Township schools when I was younger and I really benefited from the district.

I have lived in Wayne township for going on 3 years now and have not had any safety issues or big financial burdens associated. The schools make up a big part of the community so there are a lot of families around. The commute to public transportation, public roadways, grocery, gym, shopping and even work is considerably short for me and makes many things very accessible.
