People care about each other here, down town is small but unique. The schools are trying very hard to not only prepare students for college but for trade schools or careers to start immediately out of high school to fit a variety of goals by students. Not everyone wants to go on to college, ask Mike Rowe!

There is a variety a food place to eat too! There is also often big name concerts at the Idaho Center.

I was born and raised in Nampa and have lived there all my life. Although the city and its surroundings continue to grow, it still carries a sense of community and closeness. My only grip about the city would be our occasional road repairs/road construction, but what city doesn’t have that these days!
My experience of Nampa vs other places has been what many would consider "normal” and maybe even privileged. I grew up lower middle class with similar opportunities as my more fortunate counterparts. The public schools offered things like counselors and extra curriculars, but I also felt like there was this lack of awareness to develop our communities emotionally. I believe that there has been a lot of stress on young people to be successful, giving them educational tools but not enough education focused on becoming better individuals. We are always taught to work together but I feel like the lack of focus on the anxieties many of us experience is detrimental for peoples overall emotional health. We are not exactly taught to talk about and deal with our emotions and if we are it is only for a brief period for time. The bare minimum might have been sufficed but overall, I think not only in my hometown, young people and their emotional development could be considered more.
