More activities for younger children and young adults. The schooling and sports opportunity is not very good. Teachers do not last in this town. There is not very many job opportunities in this town. The pay when there are jobs available is not very good. The cost of living is not outrageous, but there are not very many living areas available.

I have lived in Bonham, Texas since 1985. My mother and I moved here from Colorado. I started school here in the 4th grade. Bonham is a peaceful town that has grown to about 10,000 people. There are a lot of elderly people that live here, as well there are more people moving to the Bonham area. A lot of people are moving here to get out of the big cities. My children were raised and went to Bonham schools. I still have one child in school he is a shophmore.
Very small town, people are so friendly. The school district will help their students to achieve their goals.
