I give three stars because it is a livable place. It is a rough environment in more than a couple of places though. A couple streets down aren't so great and gets worse. But there are the good places in this area. I realize every town is like that but we have just had the sorry side of luck in this area. The school my daughter goes to though she absolutely loves! We get regular updates on how she is doing, they have an app that we are able to go and see how she is acting in class, and parents are well informed of how their progress is as a student. The school gets 5 stars from me.

I have lived in Jacksonville for 4 years, with 2 years being consecutive. I love how everything is so close to each other. Everything is no more than maybe 10 minutes away from each other. I have never felt unsafe and I enjoy raising my daughter here. Jacksonville is very diverse and everyone is nice to each other. I went to high school in Jacksonville and I never had an issue with the learning styles. I here more and more people saying that the Jacksonville school district is not s place where you would want to send your children, but I was out of school when Jacksonville became their own school district. When I was in school it was still part of the Pulaski County Special School District so I cant speak on how it is now. But overall I love living in Jacksonville, it is very affordable and a nice place to have a family.
Inexpensive City to live in, but services are limited, and they need more activities for young kids. The annual carnival is fun!
