I thought the schools were good, the community was amazing, and small businesses were very big parts of everyday life. You couldn't go a block without having an iconic food business and the culture in Alief is super diverse!

Alief is a place that anybody can come to and enjoy themselves. It's super diverse and multicultural. The school system in Alief is like no other school system in the world, and that's a fact. We have some of the most greatest communities within the Alief community that are always beneficial to anybody that need assistance. Also, we stand behind every single person that does something good for the community and we correct and educate people who indulge in actions that are misleading in our community as well. Come to Alief, you wont regret it one bit.
I love living in Alief! I love the fact that I can live close to my church and my school. I was able to make many friends that live close to me and we can hang out at many different places around alief. I would not change anything about Alief, I love it here!
