Anthem Arizona is a small suburb of Phoenix, Arizona that is just north of the central downtown Phoenix. This community has several grocery shopping, convenience stores, and even an outlet shopping center that has some famous brand names. This community also boasts a huge central park with many ponds that allow you to partake in any sport that you choose. The many elementary, middle and one large high school also provide the necessary education for our children. Its a lovely community and would recommend it not only for its beauty but for the numerous amenities that it has to offer.

I like Anthem because it is family oriented. It's geared towards optimizing local and small businesses. It focuses on health and fitness within the community. I would like to see healthier selections when it comes to dining and shopping for foods. I would like to see more fundraising for foster care and adoption services. Lastly, I would like to see better programs for dropping-off and picking-up students from the local schools.

This is a sheltered master-plan community with low diversity and a strong conservative lean. However, most of the people are welcoming and there are lots of activities to participate in and ways to get involved in the community. The school system is good, with options available outside of the public sector as well. As with any community, there are some issues, but these mostly derive from the goal of each resident to live life to the fullest and provide that opportunity for their children, leading to competition of ideas and practice.
