Like all things, the town of Wilbraham has its ups and downs. I personally believe Wilbraham is a great town for families to grow up in because of not only the many sports and academic opportunities provided by the schools and public facilities, but also because of the friendly people the town mostly consists of. However, Wilbraham is a white-dominated community and, being someone of a minority race, I feel that those of different backgrounds and cultures can occasionally stand out from the crowd. Therefore, if there was one thing I could change about Wilbraham, it would be to make it more diverse to allow the children and adults to become more accepting to the diversifying country and the extraordinary cultures of the world. This will hopefully allow them to get a taste of the real world in which one must interact with all kinds of people to be successful.

Small town with everything you need. Grocery store, Home Depot, Ymca, gymnasts, doctors offices, dental, hairdressers ect. People are friendly many types of homes to live in ! Small ponds and mountains.
My family moved here when I was very young b/c of how great the education is said to be in this town. I cannot deny that the schools were very good, but the environment was that of a typical affluent town, e.g. the other children are just as uppity as their parents & due to that I wasn't very happy here as a kid. Now that I have been away from this town for 13 yrs., I find myself reminiscing in a positive way, b/c it is a very safe & great place to raise your family, & I did enjoy my childhood. It's just very expensive, & many of the residents act like it's the Beverly Hills of MA which is hard to deal with. There is [not-surprisingly] absolutely no diversity which sucked too.
