    I lived in the area for 10 years and attended school from 5th grade into my third year of college. The public high school has large, and unmanageable class sizes, it is a good school for sports and arts. If your leaning more toward a technical career like engineering or business you can always attend Lehigh Career and Technical Institute from your freshman year of high school on.
    The area is quite, and populated mainly by growing families and the elderly. It is a 50/50 split between being a residential area and being an industrial one. There are many factories around the residential area, and you best learn how to drive in heavy truck traffic if you want to commute. There really is no night life to speak of in the area, but there are several shopping malls close by including a new one that just opened on route 222.
    The cost of living is mid-high range, and you are guaranteed to have to commute to wherever you work unless you work in the factory area.

    There's definitely a heavy presence of chain restaurants and retailers, but mom and pop shops that have been around for ages and family owned businesses do great business here too.

    Every city has it's problems, the only main concerns here are the constant construction sites opening and never finishing.
