I have been living in Bartholomew County ever since I started Pre-K. The place is very clean especially helpful when it is a snowy day, the roads are clean and easy for drivers to go from one place to another. I also love how there are lots of events that bring all of us together like if we were a huge family. We get to meet new people, make new friends and have fun by the end of the event.

I have always loved Barthalomew County but I think there could be more community involvement and diversity
I have lived here my whole life in Columbus. It is a great place to raise kids but is not super exciting.
