Iota is a small town with A-rated elementary and high schools. There is no "bad side" of town. There is no night life whatsoever. There is a small library, a post office, 1 convenience store where gasoline is available. There is a grocery store owned by a family that are long term residents of Iota and there is a Dollar General Store. Iota has no stop lights or fast food restaurants. The police department recently replaced their gold Mercury Marquis patrol car that was marked with POLICE plastered across the top of the windshield.

It's a small town with a big heart! We strongly support our athletic teams as well as our academic clubs.
Nice, small town. Very friendly community. Job offers in town are nearly non-existent. Public schools are awesome.
