Small Community with great friendly people. This small community has approximately 1,500 people, maybe less. We have one elementary with less than 300 students. The crime rates are extremely low, considering we practically know each other, so there’s literally nothing to hide in the small community I live in. There’s one active church, Catholic, that many of the townspeople attend throughout the week, but mainly on Sunday morning. When it's time for the holidays we have a traditional Piru Parade that the town can participate ate to show our Holiday spirit and signify unity as a town. We are a proud small community.

I have been living here since I was q0 years old. The area is small, quiet but safe. There is not much to do here though but I think it's a great place to have a family.
