I love the small-town feel Choctaw gives off but also the distance it gives you. For example, when you visit choctaw's local Walmart you most likely will see 3-5 people you know there but at the same time you will see tons of new faces that you can interact with and get to know. Choctaw continues to grow every year and has grown into a 6A school and has had a lot more buisnesses move into this area. I love the way this town all comes together to the high school football games or choctaw high schools homecoming. The whole town shows up and lines the streets holding out bags or holding up cameras to either get candy from all the different kids or taking photos of all the different floats decorated to that years theme. This community is a wonderful place to live and i will live here the rest of my life. There are so many opportunites so close to you in this town and a lot of opportunities to connect with people that you may love and get to know easily and non-forceably.

What I love about Choctaw, is how small it is. I grew up in Moore and everything was so busy all the time, people always in a rush or needing to be somewhere. I got to Choctaw and everything slowed down, I felt like I could breathe again. I miss Moore with my whole heart, but I would never leave Choctaw, it is my home. I have so many friends and memories about this place, I never want to leave, but being a senior means having to make big changes in my life. Choctaw used to terrify me, it was so small and underdeveloped, but it is just like Moore almost, it keeps growing and growing, I love small towns and while Choctaw may not be as small as it used to, it still is a wonderful place filled with so much heart and love. I am blessed to be apart of it.
This is a small suburb east of Oklahoma City. The schools here are average. It has a small town feel with large city access nearby. We have both mom and pop and big box stores in this area. Multiple restaurants are nearby. We also have dentists, clinics, and doctor offices all within minutes of most neighborhoods in Choctaw. There are no movie theaters or clubs in Choctaw but there are several bars and pubs. It is a minimally diverse area. Most people are white and Christian. They are very conservative in this area. Crime is low. This is a pleasant place to live and raise your family.
