My experience in Arcola, Illinois has been a very influential time for my high school experience. Arcola school district is the most important attribute of this town. This is where great things happen to wonderful children that deserve those opportunities.
What could be my overall complaint is possibly the roads and someof the old buildings need renovations to increase possible value on those he town. Also for the people of the town that walk or drive on those roads eveyday. Less wear and tear on their automobiles.
Review Arcola
Crime is almost nonexistent. Safety is good.
Just a small town, not a lot to do.
