It's a small town, everyone knows everyone. That is either a good thing or a bad thing depending on what you want others to know about you. Elementary schools are great, middle school and high school not so much; they don't prepare you for college very well.
Review Bernalillo
Love living in Bernalillo, small town great place to grow up. Love that you can have animals, and open space. Family is close and always can ask others for help.
The town has really had much upkeep. A lot of the people living here are either on drugs, or selling those drugs.
