Jericho has been a very nice experience. I have always lived in the city, and moved from a city to the next for the past seventeen years of my life. I have lived in Tokyo, Shanghai, and New York City. Although Jericho is relatively close to the city, I was surprised by a lot of the aspects of life here, pleasantly. I love how close I am to the neighbors. How I know exactly who are my classmates in class. I love how I know most of the people in my school. How everyone knows who I am too. Just the welcoming and warming feeling of this town has grown on me. I think anyone who will come here in the future will enjoy being here.

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.
Jericho might be a smaller town, but it is filled with great things. Everyone here is highly motivated. There are many things nearby and so much to do. It is a very diverse town and the people here have similar goals.
