Ackerman Reviews

1 review
I grew up close to Ackerman, MS. I graduated from high school in Ackerman. It is a small town with many friendly people. Everyone knows everyone, and I know my children's friends because I went to school with their parents. Our little town is very safe. I am completely comfortable leaving my children at home (with my 16 year old daughter) after they get home from school. It takes me approximately 5 minutes to get across town to work. It's just a great little place to live and raise a family.
