    Big Grove Township Reviews

    It's just a small farming town, but Newark definitely has character. I especially enjoyed my high school experience in Newark. The high school staff and faculty are all very knowledgeable and caring for their students. The school is very technologically advanced for a small town school.
    Review Big Grove Township
    They are great, food is good, museum is interesting. And there are friendly people owning the other businesses. All of the companies are locally owned and they thrive. Except the pizza place, no one can ever seem to "make it" there.
    Love the area. Would love to live here forever, but obligations cause are going to cause me to move soon
