I love the sense of community and pride that I experience as a citizen of Broken Arrow. With a population of just over 100,000 people, Broken Arrow still manages to have that small-town feel. Main Street is lined with restaurants and quaint boutiques. Near the Farmer's Market, children can play at the outdoor water feature in the summer and go ice skating at the outdoor rink in the winter. Every May, Main Street is lined with hundreds of people for the annual Rooster Days parade and festival. Voted one of the safest cities for its size, Broken Arrow's sense of pride extends beyond the city itself to its schools. Broken Arrow High School was recently voted "America's Most Spirited High School." As with any city that experiences rapid growth, the City of Broken Arrow has experienced challenges with traffic issues and other growth-related problems, but the City is addressing those challenges and recently passed a bond to improve roads and accommodate growth.

I love living in Broken Arrow! It's safe and quiet and the people are really friendly! I graduated from Broken Arrow and the school, although quite unreasonable large, was still a fairly good school. There's plenty of restaurant options and many stores to shop in. It's a lovely town and I would recommend living here to anyone.
I love living in Broken Arrow. The people are so nice! The city seems to be constantly growing. The public school system is great other than the amount of kids in each class. The graduating classes at Broken Arrow are approximately 1500 kids. I think they should separate the North and South sides of the city into separate school systems.
