Bullying is a very common and a serious issue at this school. Sadly, racism is also an issue here. Everyone knows everything about everyone. Outsiders are not usually welcomed in this community.

I think Lisbon should combine their school with Mount Vernon. This would provide the children a better opportunity to take a wider variety of classes. It would cut down on the administrative costs to the district.

It is a friendly town.
It is a great small town, but not much to do/opportunities for entertainment and jobs. The community is so loving and close; everyone looks out for each other.
