Overall West Springfield is a great place to live! It's relatively safe and has a lot of events that are held annually. The public schools are rated highly, and the nightlife is pretty good. Another thing that I really enjoy about West Springfield is the diversity, you can find people from any ethnicity or race in the world. West Springfield is also a Suburb of DC so there are lots of government job opportunities and events held in DC that are about a 30-minute commute away.

I enjoy the convenience of shops and food. The ease of access to 495 and 395 is wonderful! The mall is just 5 minutes away. The high school took my son in tight away with no problems. We spoke with them about his goals and they stepped right up to ensure his goals for his senior year was met. M6 neighbors are delightful. We speak and look after one another if away or if we see something out of place.
Our community is so diverse! Not only are we in close proximity to D.C., but the local area is booming with entertainment as well! I always feel safe and very accepted here as people are so kind and welcoming. Our schools are highly rated and our crime rates are low which is what appealed to my family and I.
