I really like the support of the close-knit community of West Bridgewater. The community always come together to support local businesses, local families, and students. Growing up here has given me a lot of opportunities to help improve myself. The school system offers opportunities to for interest-led learning by providing state of the art technology, new and innovative classes, and supportive staff.
West Bridgewater is a small town and with that comes safety. Whether it be the ability to walk to a friend’s house in the evening or leave a bike unattended outside a convenience store. Most people know each other by association and have respect for our town and property.
Being a small town has it’s downsides as well. I would like to see more diversity. It would be nice if West Bridgewater could represent more cultures.
Overall, I’m glad I’ve spent my life living here but I’m looking forward exploring new places to live and learn.

Growing up in West Bridgewater, I have few complaints. The school system, while not very diverse, is extremely strong. The new building is a huge asset, and it is clear that the students face an academically rigorous program of studies. This community is extremely safe, despite being next to a city. It is a very close-knit community, making it great for families.
West Bridgewater is a small town. It's pretty typical. It has a great school system but the cost to live here can get very expensive. West Bridgewater is a great place to have a family and grow up in. Most people who live here stay here for their whole lives, and love every second of it. Some people will say its a small town with nothing to do but after coming from a big town to here I appreciate the town much more and I am happy I live here.
