I like Summerfield because it's a quiet, well-kept suburb of Greensboro. The local farms and backroads give it a rural feel, but there are bits of urban shopping centers and stores popping up. The close proximity to the new highway that shortens the trip to downtown Greensboro and I-40 is also convenient.

Participation in sports is imperative in my community, with the majority of school funding going towards sports. My high school can get money to build a new football stadium, but it cannot fund the orchestra classes to get them out of the trailers and into a classroom. Granted, it is great to see a community so united over one activity. School spirit is always highest whenever there is a football game, and my school's student section is always bursting with pride. But it is disheartening to see the inequality in funding among various activities at my school. Regardless of this difference, moving to Summerfield was the best thing for my family. Back in New Jersey, my community was experiencing constant robberies, making my family fearful for going into our own house. But ever since our move, our fear has significantly lessened because of the caring environment that my family and I now live in.
I love being in a small town, and being 15 minutes away from a city. Perfect balance. There could be an expansion of food resources (restaurants, fast food).
