Windham Reviews

Terrible overall dining options. Highly transient town - people move in with families / move out when they graduate high school. Middle school is both crowded and ill-equipped to prepare students for the rigors of high school academia. Revolving door of teachers and administrators. Now on 3rd school super in a brand new SAU. Last high school principal had a nervous breakdown and left. Quality of local school board administration is poor to fair. If your kid has college aspirations, suggest private schools in the area, which are good quality options. No center of town to speak of. Great social media interaction and engaged public.

Good access to rec facilities, although the Ain park is typically crowded on the weekends. Public safety is top notch. 35 minutes from downtown Boston (without traffic). Suggest owning a home without municipal water. Ultra high taxes.

Let's start with there is no diversity here or very expensive homes. The NEW HS we are still paying for us too small design of said school is poor. No room for expansion. Few ok places to eat. Nothing that would make anyone say "I'm driving to Windham to eat at......". The community does not have a small town feel. The expansion of the HIGHWAY took care of all that, added extra 30 minutes to my commute. Windham is not all that. You have to be honest when giving a review. After reading some of the other reviews Windham residents let's get real. Oh yes the word diversity does not apply to Windham.
Great school system, close to everything including Boston. Great for families. Close to shopping, lots to do in the area.
