Darien is a beautiful town with excellent schools but it is very pricey. There are many great neighborhoods and some very good shopping. For information on schools in town check out the web sites below. Jay

It's hard to say what "nice people" means. You should visit and see if the vibe is what you are looking for. There are lots of communities with excellent schools in this area that have a different mix of homes, landscape, shopping, etc., that all have a slightly different feel.

hey ,

i moved here 2 and a half weeks ago , and it's been AMAZING!! i just started at the high school and the teachers have been really helpful . kids here are really , really smart, and kind of competitive , but if you're used to that kind of thing then i'm sure you (or your kids) will fit in nicely !

i'm not from NYC but some drivers here are totally sketchy . i'm not really used to that, so watch out .
good luck !
