In order to know if the U.S and Mexico borderlands are a formal, functional, or perceptual region you must know what each of them are. According to the Encyclopedia of the Earth website a formal region is frequently used to outline governmental, physical, cultural and economic areas. Some familiar examples include, Canada, the Rocky Mountains, the Islamic World, or the rice-growing areas. A functional region has a focal point (often a city) and is the organized space surrounding that central location. And a Perceptual region is an area that people believe exists as part of their cultural identity. Therefore, just by looking at all of the definitions and by going by process of elimination you can see that the borderlands are a formal region. All formal regions are based on measurable data and are defined by their physical features and their characteristics.

With that it followed towns and eventually a city being built there. It was ideal because there was also the canals that were build from the Native Americans. From what I learned from my Native American class last semester is that the Native American's that lived in those areas like the Gila Bend, Maricopa, Papago, and San Xavier reservations were great at agriculture. They made canals come from the main water source from higher up in Arizona and travel down to let the water flow so they could live in their areas still.

Alhambra Traditional School. There is a tiny park called Ladmo Park that is almost two blocks away but far from the school. There is is community pools or other features for the students.
