After living in Los Angeles, CA for 15 years and running a successful bilingual preschool there for 9 years, Stephanie Raleigh and her husband were ready for a change. With her husband’s career in music business,  Nashville made sense. However, rather than living in another large city, they were drawn to Spring Hill for its safe, family-friendly community and its excellent schools.
