I liked growing up here, the school system was really great. Amazing teachers! The only thing I didn't like is the weather and the terrain. I love the mountains! That is why I left. I would live here again only because I am going to go to school to be a teacher and would love teaching in the Brandon Valley School District!

Brandon is a close knit community. We are always there for each other in the good and bad times. Our community is very friendly to families and elders. Even though it is sometimes quiet, we always have activities going on in Brandon. Brandon is a excellent community to live in.
The town of Brandon is very close-knit. This is a great town to raise a family, there are many different schools and opportunities that arise in the town. It is a small enough town that you know a lot of people and the community is close, but big enough so that you can be involved in great things.
