Developing community, lots of young families, lots of new schools being built! Very safe community as well, with two police stations in the area. Most of the teachers love what they are doing but the reason im giving four stars instead of five is because theres a few teachers that arent very good at what they do. While rare, if you are stuck with one it can make for a lack of learning on the subject.
South Lyon community schools was school district that I continue to go back, and interact with. The teaching staff they have hired are excellent in addressing any problems but also making school a comfortable and safe environment to be you. The staff and students at the school support you in your outside conquests, and make sure that you are prepared as you can be for your future.
