I love the schools in French Settlement. With their relatively small amounts of students, the teachers are able to bond with students and students are more likely to be able to receive one-on-one assistance. I've attended both of their two schools - French Settlement Elementary and French Settlement High - and the teachers are better than I've seen at any other local school. There is a relatively large number of stores in the area compared to the number of people, which is a plus. With it being such a small town, everything is within a five or ten minute drive from wherever you are with little to no traffic at any time in the day, except for local sports where the community tends to come together for.

Quiet village. No traffic. Long commute to work, by choice. Country atmosphere. Close to recreational water activities.
It's a small, quiet town where everyone knows everyone. It is a safe environment for families. There aren't any major companies and the commute time is never slow. Locals get together at places such as church cook-offs and annual Christmas parades bring the community together, as well as the towns public-school sports games.
