    This is a small community so there is a lot of community support. Very good school system. Could use a little more diversity in the area. Could use a little wider college readiness and ACT preparation for their students. The area is not as acceptable as it should be, in my opinion, to new, out of town residence because of the numerous multiple generations. Overall, it is a safe, area to live in and yes I would consider living here again.

    I've moved around a whole lot. But even with so many places to compare it to, Brookville is my all-time favorite. It's pretty safe, quiet, and has pretty good schools. And the people here are much nicer than ones I've met elsewhere. If I stayed in the States, I can honestly say I may move back here after college. The weather is typical Ohio weather, it changes everyday, sometimes hourly.

    The only actual crimes I've heard of are some minor robberies and a few stupid high schoolers dealing drugs. Besides, Cops seem to be everywhere, and they always know when you're speeding.
