It is a very good neighborhood to live in! The people are very nice and welcoming, and it also has very nice houses. It has two nearby parks that you can take your children and even pets to, which is a very good bonus.

What i like about Jefferson Parish is that they are some good school to send you kids to and plus it is a very diversity school with every race , religion and color.Also that you kind of learn somethings but it depends what kind of teacher you have.
The area is overpriced to live in. The only plus is that everything is close by. It is also not a place I would want to raise children or start a family. The school system here is terrible and the level of education is extremely poor.
