West Bridgewater has a ubiquitous amount of family activities such as our annual park day celebration, musicals and sports games put on by the high school, and tons of great breakfast restaurants! If I had one bone to pick with good ol' WB however, it would be the lack of diversity and lack of anti-bullying measures at their public schools.

A small town, with relatively easy access to larger towns and cities, like Boston. Cozy, as friendly as New England can really be!
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.
