I’ve lived in West Pasco my entire life and it’s an alright place to live. I’m a freshman at Chiawana and it’s a good school. In West Pasco I love the diversity, kindness of people and how much it’s growing. Tri-Cities is one of the fastest growing metro areas in the USA. I really love how there’s a mix of Hispanics and Caucasians. Things that aren’t too good is there’s not a ton to do, public schools aren’t good and no one votes because lots of people in Pasco are in poverty. Our bond passed by 6 votes when 20,000 more people could’ve voted. Sad. Weather is nice though and the 3 cities have good high school rivalry.

There are some cultural gems, like the Uptown Shopping Mall, and some other places to have fun like the Columbia Center Mall, but for the most part you have to find your own way to have fun here. Columbia Basin College is a good college, but the local high schools leave a lot to be desired, and many schools of all levels are overpacked. It's super hot here too - regularly gets above 110 for a couple weeks in the summer, but I'm okay with that.
West pasco is amazing! we just need more actives for kids such as arcades, pools and maybe a laser tag place.
