I really love how welcoming everyone in Long Branch is. We are all so accepting of each other, regardless of our race, gender, or ethnicity. Although we don't come from a great socio-economic background, we still make the most of everything, including our education. I am very thankful that my school has provided me with great opportunities, such as a variety of AP classes.
It is changing a lot, with all the high rises going up, the price of living is going up as well. It is a very summery city, being on the shore, but local summer is the best time of the year, its nice weather and no bennys!
