This little town is the perfect mix between small town America and suburbia. The majority of the residents in Coal Valley are employed by the bigger name companies: John Deere and Cobham. They all live in various subdivisions on top of the hill. The outlying houses are either farmers, work for small businesses or various nonprofits in the Quad City area.
The elementary school (k-6) feeds into the Moline School District with the 7-8 students go to John Deere Middle School and then Moline High School for 9-12.

The Quad Cities area is a great place to live and has allot to offer. This area displays a wide variety of entertainment venues, grocery stores as well as convenient shops, great choices for eating out, movie theaters, malls that offer clothes, household items, you name it you will find it here in the Quad Cities area! I have lived in this area since 2008 and believe me, it is the best move I have ever made in my life! I have two teenagers that are going to be attending college this fall and they have enjoyed living in an environment that offers so much more than the small town that we moved from in 2008.
Compared to the small towns that I have lived in in previous years, the Quad Cities area has so much to offer whether you are 5 or 55! The schools consists of caring teachers, knowlegeable in what they do, and there are various large companies such as John Deere that offer a wide array of job opportunities. There is also a great selection of colleges to choose from in the Quad Cities area. I have first hand experience with this since both my kids are currently in college!
