I live in johns-town. there aren't much activities for children to be involved in. The High school is a great school because it is 2 in 1 you can get your general HS education and at the same time take a vocational class and potentially graduate with a certificate.
I like Cambria because there are lots of nice people here who are able to help you. It's not hard to make good friends as there are many good people out here. There are also many nice places to go, especially restaurants to go and visit.
