Living in Lodi is convenient; there are numerous shops, restaurants, grocery stores, and fast food places that are available. Lodi also provides gyms such as Blink Fitness and LA Fitness, which allow Lodi residents to utilize for their workout routines. Although Lodi may be convenient, the public education system is not exactly the best. Elementary school was alright for me, and it allowed me to properly transition into middle school without any complaints. However, I couldn't fully enable myself in middle school, and it left me uncomfortable with my peers. Thomas Jefferson Middle School did not promote socializing as much, and it was bad for me, since I was shy back then. Going into high school was a fun experience; freshman year was the best, and the principal always promoted being proactive. Although the activities in school were fun, education was not exactly the best. For example, in my junior year, I was left with no teacher in honors chemistry

I have lived in Lodi my whole life. As a town there is many community events, specials, and history withing Lodi. In the 17 years, I have experienced many exciting things from street fairs to concerts. Lodi is very diverse and welcomes very warmly, everyone. It has many great eateries, from European, Asian, or classic American. There is also many gyms, shops, and stores, along with many job oppertunities.
The schools are mediocre at best, with some major scandals involving teachers, low SAT scores and too few students continuing their education in college. Crime is increasing and there are many negative influences for children to encounter as the grow and socialize. Upward social mobility is limited.
