I would like to see more effort put into the public schools; most of the schools, boiling springs middle, boiling springs 9th grade campus, and boiling springs high school, are very old. The town is becoming very over populated so its only necessary to fix up the schools and make them bigger, or knock them down completely and make new bigger schools for the overwhelming population. The night life is very active, I used to think it was safe, but very recently its become not safe. There are more crimes compared to just 5 years ago. Cars are being broke into, banks getting robbed, people getting killed, etc.

My hometown where I was born and raised. Is a rapidly growing community with several major franchise businesses like Walmart and McDonalds, but gives off the quaint little community feeling. Mostly middle-class residences, but everyone has that southern hospitality vibe.

Nice, small town atmosphere. Growing quickly. Easy access to many colleges. Downtown has a good night life and is a safe environment.
