Average for Indiana. Cost of living is good. Lots of rundown neighborhoods and at least four trailer parks. Main entrance is through the lower income part of town, but the other two either have nothing but a gas station to offer or so much traffic it’s barely worth it. Best thing about this town is Titus Donuts. Nepotism runs rampant, tenured politicians are shady in many ways. The new mayor is trying to drag this place into the 21st century. Soooo many born and raised here and it shows. Closed minded, small town mentality. Many who help you only do it to get the accolades or something to gossip about. Outsiders would be better off in Anson or Zville. I cannot wait to move out of here. Two more years....

This school has very attentive teachers who are always willing to help and have an undying passion for helping their students. The school is however, moderately sexist with their dress code which is why it is not fully 5 stars. Besides this, the school education is incomparable and this school offers many creative and fun activities such as parking spot painting and pep rallies.
Lebanon, IN is a good city. This is a friendly city. Lebanon public schools are excellent. My son is attending preschool at Lebanon, IN. The integration is excellent. This is a lovely place. People are living healthy here and the real estate market is good.
This is a small city where you can reach the needed services easily, but public transportation is low. It is better to have your car.
This is a safe place. I have been living here four years ago and have never had any safety issue. The apartments are affordable.
There are a lot of Job opportunities at Lebanon. Many warehouses are at Lebanon and are always looking for employees.
