Gila County Reviews

1 review
Gila Valley is really pretty. There are cotton fields everywhere that make great pictures. Over the city looms Mount Graham. It is beautiful! You can do any out door activities there due to the beautiful area and out door shops. The people in Thatcher are great; there is a strong membership of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

The majority of teachers at EAC have "lived the dream" and are now teaching us. For example, the Human Patho teacher was a doctor for 55 years and then a teacher so he skips the things you will never see out in the medical field and provide a more direct learning experience. I love all of the classes I'm in.

The only thing that it don't like is there are many people who use drugs and the town can get a little lonely with only a few residents.
