As a student going through Alliance City Schools who used to live elsewhere, I can say that Alliance is not a very desirable place to live. Summers are hot, but most of the year is cold, and Winters make it impossible to do much outdoors. Most residents are not well-educated or worldly at all, and while there is a prominent African-American community, diversity is still not good. No one cares about learning and classes are ridiculously easy. Teachers on the other hand are actually quite good, and there's a wide variety of extracurricular activities available. My most standards, it's not a good place to live, but compared to other local schools, it's the best.

Alliance is a smaller city, which I personally like. I loved my teachers as I was growing up and my groups of friends always had a mixture of some of everybody. When I was in high school, there really wasn't any set "cliques". A lot of the athletes were also quite high up in class rankings, and also were in the musicals, or band, orchestra, choir, and/or one of the vocational classes that are offered there. Something I would change about Alliance, though, would be that there isn't really many extracurricular activities for teenagers, young adults, and adults. You have to go to another city near Alliance to find more activities and outings.
The the most important aspect of Alliance, Ohio, is that it is a mid-size community with a small town feel. I am the third generation to have been raised in Alliance and because of this, I have many friends and family members who are always there for me, willing to help whenever needed. I feel very connected to Alliance, mainly because my grandfather and mother were educators in our town. This has afforded me some unique opportunities to get to know people and to become involved in the city through many volunteer opportunities through the YMCA, the Salvation Army and the Alliance Food Pantry. The one thing I would improve about Alliance is to increase entertainment opportunities for teenagers in the city. Therefore, I would increase organizations and opportunities for teens to become involved.
