I have lived in this small rural town for about 9-10 years and it has been very pleasant to be there. The town consist of two corner stores, one small restaurant, a decent sized park, an elementary, middle, and early college high school, and a detention center next to the elementary (don't worry is it the place is closely monitored 24/7). The community always has something going on for holidays and there are clubs where little kids can participate in sports. Admittedly, I had only attended school there from 3rd to the first semester of 7th grade before I transferred over to Weslaco so I can't say a lot about the education system now. However, when I was there, the public school really seemed to be lagging behind. For being one of the top students there, transferring over gave me a rude awakening on how behind I actually was. That is the only complaint I have with the town but things could have changed since I have last attended school there.

La Villa is such a small city in the Rio Grande Valley. The majority of people living in La Villa are related in one way or another. I have several cousins who just live on my street. We're very close-knit too especially since Hispanics live here more than any other ethnicity. In all honesty, not much goes on here and ever so often does the city hall plan an event for the community. Since we're very small, the city does not earn enough taxes to renovate the streets, city park, and schools so much has stayed the same over the years. However, I do enjoy how peaceful it is and it is rare that the police sirens go off because hardly anyone commits a crime. It isn't the biggest or the best city in Texas, but it is where I grew up and I have grown comfortable with my surroundings here.
It is a very small town, and everyone knows everyone. I wish to change the way the school is ran sometimes. A lot of favoritism and decisions are based of personal benifit.
