The schools are great with lots of choices: homeschools, charter schools, career tech high, and certifications in high school. The people are friendly and hard working with christian values and proud of who they are as Americans.

I would absolutely live here again. It is a great safe community with kind people. It is very beautiful. Lots of things to do outdoors. Not much to do otherwise. Most everyone who lives here does it because they love it. The area is growing rapidly. The fastest growing area in the US i believe. We are getting more things to do as more businesses move in. More money is flowing here to help out the small local businesses. I see great things for the valley i live in.
I know that there are drugs and crime happening, but it seems to involve those who are perpetuaing the crimes and not random members of the community.
