Beaumont is the perfect city for anyone who is looking for a quiet area! We have few, but amazing attractions: Lamar University offers a wide variety of summer camps for all ages! Few do pay the fee for economically disadvantaged students, so it is a plus for low income families; other camps are free. The Children's Museum also holds various summer activities and events. The Art Museum of Southeast Texas also holds various creative events for kids to make wacky crafts! The art museum also offers summer camps for children! The best attraction for young people would be the Butch Stadium, where various high schools play football! As for our school district, Beaumont Independent School District, we have many teachers who truly care for the education of the students! We have many of the smartest students represented at graduation every year! Our city has an average population, so crowding is no issue. Beaumont continues to grow as the population has greatly increased throughout the years!

My experience living in Beaumont has been average. Beaumont, Texas is classified as one of the most dangerous cities in Texas. There is always crime and someone is getting killed every single day, which is extremely scary when you're living in the city that this is occurring in. The public schools in Beaumont are not good at all. I attend a private high school in Beaumont called Monsignor Kelly Catholic High School, because the public school education is not the greatest. There's also not a lot of job opportunities in Beaumont, which is why many people relocate to cities such as Houston, Dallas, or Austin. Beaumont is very limited to the activities in which people can participate in. There's not much to do here, so when an event takes place, you will more than likely see tons of people you know there. This is my last year in high school, and I plan to attend college somewhere else other than in Beaumont.
While Beaumont does offer a place of diversity in many aspects and provides residence in proximity to Houston, Texas, the overall city could manage to work on bettering itself as a whole. Segregation appears to be common throughout the area whether it be through costs of living or school districts. Beaumont, Texas should most definitely prioritize on togetherness in education, the economy, the natural environment, and much more.
