Crime & Safety
For the first 6 years of my life, I lived in on the north side of Arcadia (West Peters Street). Our family was friends with all of our neighbors. I had a 6 year old version of a crush on a girl a year older than me who lived across the road from us until she moved out. After we moved to a rural house outside of Arcadia, we continued going to Arcadia School. PreK-12 is all in one building with (I'm estimating) less than 1000 students in the building. My graduating class was one of the bigger classes Arcadia has had with around 63 students. I knew everyone in my class, most of the classes directly above and directly below me, at least half the students two classes below me, and a decent amount of the students below that. If you are thinking about Arcadia as a place to live, you will not be surprised by the quaintness of the town. The only downside would be the fact that everyone knows pretty much everyone.
