I believe this small little town of Bogota is the perfect place to grow up in or start a family. Everbody each other so it is like one big family! The schools are small as well, and the school activities are grand. We may be small be we have state champ trophies up our sleeves as well!

I have lived in Bogota for over 10 years which is most of my life. This small town is one of the best places to live, not only do you feel like a family with everyone here you feel safe seeing Bogota Police saying hi and dropping by here and there. The public schools here are amazing, teachers very engaged with their student and we can never be more proud of our high school sports which brings us together. Very friendly neighbors and a community that is so active with the town. As small as we are there is also a lot to do here, wouldn't want to live anywhere else.
Public School: Bogota High School is diverse and small. All students will know one another and be able to have one on one with the staff
Nightlife: there is not much to do in Bogota. Since the town is so small there is not a lot to do within the town, but there are things to do in the neighboring towns
Commute Time: For those who work in the city, this is great place because you are 15-20 minutes away from the George Washington Bridge
