I've lived in Stark county for many years. In several different areas. Some parts are better than others. It all depends on which area you find yourself in. Most of the time I feel safe in the environment. Public and private school are available. A lot of the high schools have career tech opportunities, all of which I have been a part of are amazing.

It is big in size, but Stark County still seems so small and homely because everyone knows someone that someone else knows. Stark County is very diverse in race, gender, agriculture, and status.
I love living in stark county. The schools are awesome. There is so much to do and the council members seem to really listen to the community on needs and improvements!
