True, Sudbury is yet another wealthy, residential Boston suburb to make our list. But don’t be fooled — this is no ho-hum town. Since its inception hundreds of years ago, Sudbury has been distinguished by a distinctive character committed to certain core values.
For starters, the township has managed mightily to stave off overdevelopment and retain a strong rural flavor, with acres of woods and scenic winding roads. All the same, there’s a plethora of single-family large homes, including scores of stately, centuries-old colonials and more recently built mansions. As well, the population is known for its allegiance to education. A sizable portion of the high real estate taxes goes toward maintaining the excellent schools, most notably Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High. While the student body scores high on standardized tests, the administration resists trends to teach only to tests and maintains a diverse curriculum to promote creative, individual thinking.
Of particular note: The original Sudbury Valley School in neighboring Framingham (falling within the Sudbury district) is acclaimed for its groundbreaking, progressive approach to schooling and has spawned nearly 40 Sudbury schools worldwide.
