El Reno Reviews

I moved to El Reno three years ago after living the last twelve in a small town nearby. I really enjoy living in El Reno. This town is big enough to have Walmart and several dining options, but small enough that you can feel the country lifestyle. People here are very friendly. I really enjoyed the school system. That's the main reason I moved here. My last town didn't offer advanced classes and I needed more of a challenge. The teachers at El Reno HS are all so helpful and truly invested in your future.

El Reno used to be a railroad town or cowtown as they called it. It's becoming more family friendly and still keeping its roots as a cowtown. El Reno has a cattle auctions every Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday with friendly cowboys that will give you the 911 on schools, churches, and best places to eat.
I have lived here my whole life. It is small town living like people dream about it! Everyone is friendly and when in need we are El Reno Strong!
