Great Question - and one most home buyers naturally have. It may be helpful for you to understand that Realtors are NOT permitted to discuss this question with buyers. I know that is frustrating.
Having said that, Realtors are knowledgeable about the resources which may help you learn more about your question.
a. Check with the town demographic profile....Check out the schools profiles and website - learn about their sports, dance, music, newspaper groups etc.
b. Call the Town Clerks office an learn if there is a New Comers Group or something similar - and call to speak with members of the group living in that community
c. Call the school and ask to visit the school - see with your own eyes
d. ASK people who live in the Community what their experience has been
Notice - this is all about other peoples view points and their personal experiences. When it comes down to it - you will determine the quailty of life you have in any community.
