This neighborhood is great! It is in an amazing location, close to great schools, the mall, grocery stores, and plenty of dining options and activities to do. The streets are lined with trees and the HOA makes sure that all yards are maintained which leaves the neighborhood always looking great! The parks and grassy areas are wonderful as well as the track around the neighborhood. The only negatives are how close the houses are, which means small yards, as well as the dogs in the neighborhood, however, it is tolerable.

My time here has been a very vital to general atmosphere because I felt completely welcomed. The best thing about being here is most of the great people that I've gotten to meet, they have also contributed to making every student on campus feel like they are the most important person in the world. From the personal questions that they ask you to get to know you to the fun activities that they have you do on dawg days, this has overall been the greatest experience that I have had in my entire life.
We moved in right before I started kindergarten. I was so excited to have my own room and a big backyard to play in. I remember once we got my room all set up I was so happy, I kept walking in and out just to be sure it was still perfect each time. Our next door neighbor had a niece who would visit every summer, we would hang out almost everyday. Our neighbors are nice and very welcoming, every Christmas we exchange cookie platters. This is the best neighborhood we've lived in. It's close to everything and the schools I've gone to have been great.
