Rose Hill, Va - Great for Raising Kids

Absolute positive experiences for me living in Rose Hill, Va. One of the better cities to raise kids. Entails an incredible school system, low crime and an excellent employment rate.

Compared to other cities I've lived in throughout Virginia, Rose Hill is far greater when it comes to crime prevention. The property crime rate in the city is over 100% better than the average percentage in all of Virginia, and I can believe it. I personally appreciate feeling safe walking with my kids down the street and them playing with their friends on the outside. I appreciate the credible statistics that reveals that overall crime is 68% lower than national average. Also, I appreciate the fact that the teacher to student ratio is 10:1 versus the national average of 16:1. And the fact that the average national test scores are 53% lower than Rose Hill, says that these teachers actually have a handle on their students and that's exactly what I want coming from my kid's school.

I love the average summer temperatures of 75 degrees. The parks are plentiful, somewhere that I like spending a lot of time at with the family. I personally like visiting the Mount Eagle Park, it entails a large clean area for having a huge cookout for kids to run in fun, engaging in tons of sports and activities in the process. The best areas to live near Rose Vill, Va are Claremont, Arlington; Lyon Village, Arlington and Arlington Ridge, Arlington. Rose Hill, Va is just 30 minutes outside of Washington, D.C.
