I love my community! It's in the Pattonville School District, where teacher really care about their students. It's also very diverse in race and economic status! Beautiful quite neighborhood.

I love the quaint little houses as I drive up and down the streets, each one looks exactly the same, but the people inside, are each so different and so unique it makes the whole area come alive when brought together for local events, such as parades and barbecues.
Bridgeton is a pretty diverse town with an awesome school district. That's what I love the most about this town. St. Louis is a pretty divided city but Bridgeton defeats the odds. Another good thing is the amount of shopping and restaurants. There is both a Walmart and Target, and an abundance of restaurants. New stores and commerce pops up all the time.
