The school district is great; many of the students here graduate with excellency and more than half tend to go to top 50 universities. However, nightlife is rather terrible for students, at there is only a small local mall that people tend to go to . An arcade opened recently, but only problem is that to play games, you have to be willing to pay a good amount of money.

We just moved here and so far we love it! Lots of yummy restaurants! People are very nice. Really great.
One of the safest communities and has the best public school education! Everything you need is within a 10 minute drive!
