As someone who grew up in Weymouth and currently resides in the area my personal opinion is that it is a great town in which to raise children. That said, there are many factors to consider in choosing the right neighborhood for you. For some general statistics on the town you may want to check out http://www.city-data.com/city/Weymouth-Massachusetts.html. Feel free to contact me if I can provide any assistance.

Natalie,

Born and raised in Weymouth I can say I love this town. Location to everything is excellent. Neighbors are nice, schools are good, there is plenty of industry in town. One concern to note regarding schools, Weymouth has a dense, diverse population schoold tend to be over crowded almost like a city school atmosphere. For the most part Weymouth Schools have been updated, renovated or well maintained.

Depending on your commute I would suggest visting Hingham, Norwell, Scituate, Pembroke and Hanover if education is priority.

Do your own homework first--Visit a neighborhood several times to get a sense of “belonging”. Check out area statistics; real estate professionals are prohibited from “steering”—enticing a buyer to purchase, or not, in specific neighborhoods--as far as safety, visit the local police department and ask all your questions, they'll be glad to answer and you'll be happy to have heard the information firsthand. Keep in mind opinions are just that-- what may be good for one is not necessarily good for another.
