Albion Reviews

3 reviews
Albion is a nice quiet little town with a good school. The biggest down side in my opinion would be on how they spend money that was raised. Raising money should be used to help better the town and the people, but instead its wasted. One good example would be when they decided to build a new football field. Why spend money on a football field when the money can buy better books or new musical interments. Future job employers don't look at if you had the most touch downs, they care about good grades.
Review Albion
Albion is a great small town with amazing people. Boone Central schools is a school that competes well in sports and in academics. They are well known and work hard. Albion also has a community that works around the school and supports them in many ways. When students make it to districts or playoffs the whole town is behind them and supporting there moves. Albion only has one k through 12th grade school in sports and activities making it easy to cheer on one school and not be split with who to cheer for. Many of the surrounding towns come to Albion to hang out or come to events being a larger community.
The town of Albion is a very good place to live. One reason is because it is very small and you know everyone that lives here. All around people are very nice to you and caring towards you.
