Circleville is a small town with some diversity, but it consists mostly of white families. Recently there have been more people of color moving in, but they're still the minority. Circleville High school is average in every sense of the word. There's some school spirit, but even then it's minuscule to none when it comes to pep rallies and football games. The ceiling tiles leak, students vape and sometimes even smoke in the bathrooms, and most students have no respect for their teachers. There isn't much in terms of entertainment - our skating rink/bowling alley burned down a couple of years ago and was never rebuilt - and the parks have been overtaken by druggies and litter. The most you'll see are the five or so banks we have around every corner, which isn't even an understatement.
I'm grateful that I've been safe while living here, but Circleville has had its fair share of crimes for how big of a town we are.

I love the Pumpkin Show. It is one of my favorite times of the year because you get to hang with your friends and family having such a fun time. You get to ride rides, eat fair food, and watch a ton of cool parades! You also get to look at all of the interesting crafts and booths. One thing I do not like about Circleville is the drug problem. I know drugs are basically a problem everywhere, but it seems like everyday we get something new with it.
This town is up and coming. Many businesses are starting to move here because they recognize the potential we have. The one bad thing is there is a bit of a drug epidemic in the public school of Circleville. If you know how to protect yourself, you'll do just fine.
