I get to hear gunshots at night, so that should tell you in what type of neighborhood I live in. For the most part, the houses are spread far apart from each other. I do like the rural community because I dislike living in the city. The Val Verde Unified School District is surprisingly a good district despite the shady neighborhoods. Like in any city there are bad and good parts.

Honestly, Perris was great growing up, the weather, community, and agriculture wasn't bad. However, since I lived there pretty much my whole life, I feel like everyday was like the same routine, sure, there was great memories in that town, but there was times when there was nothing interesting to do.
Other than the small city of Perris there is a lot of opportunities in the schools and community. The people living in the area are so friendly and kind, making people feel at home
