    Compared to the rest of the country, we lag behind. It is very southern and mostly community oriented. I do not plan to raise my family here. I rather be somewhere where my family has a variety of opportunities.

    A small area as this should not have crime as much as we do. Everyone knows each and every person, yet some petty and outrageous crimes happen.
    school has a good atmosphere. it has plenty of resources and great learner center with great technology. It also has an amazing staff that make up a great school environment.
