I've lived here for most of my life, and it's been a really good place to grow up. The schools can be really competitive and there is a huge focus on academics. That's not a bad thing, it is sometimes unhealthy when the mental health of students is disregarded.

I have lived on the Sammamish Plateau on and off for 10 years. My home is on one of the highest locations on the plateau and I love seeing the Cascade Mountains and sunrises from my bedroom window. The neighborhoods are quiet and everyone keeps their yards looking pretty. I really like Sammamish. it is close to the college I go to and feels like it's 30 minutes to anywhere, Bellevue, Seattle, Issaquah, Snoqualmie Falls... It has grown a lot in the past few years and is now getting congested and the stores and roads are more crowded. It doesn't feel as neighborly. People are moving here from all over the place and this scares me a little as the roads and building regulations are not keeping up with the influx of people. I might move soon if it gets any worse. I will miss Sammamish if I do have to move. But I am very glad I had the opportunity to live here.
The Sammamish Plateau is a very safe, family-based community who are always willing to help those in need. This area is constantly building new infrastructure to expand and add to the community such as food shops and exercise centers.
