Bovina Reviews

2 reviews
Shiocton is a very tight knit small town. It has the most welcoming education system I have ever been a part of. If I could ever go back and do it all over again, I would start from kindergarten and progress all the way through high school. There is something special about growing up with the friends you have in school and having every teacher know your face. Some people would say taking the bus is a pain, but not here. In Shiocton, a person grows to know everyone they walk by, and that's the most amazing thing about this small town.
Review Bovina
It's a safe area, but police seem more concerned with giving out tickets.
